FreshBox Farms’ indoor hydroponic farms are bringing fresh produce closer to your home by breaking down the old barriers set by traditional farming. Their produce is delivered to stores within 24 hours of harvest; often in the same day. Growing indoors at their farm in Millis, Massachusetts, means their greens are always in-season, and are available FRESH all year-round.
FreshBox Farms’ greens are of the highest quality and grown purely, without ever using pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or any other chemicals. Their crops are never genetically modified and proudly verified by the Non-GMO Project.
FreshBox Farms’ greens are clean from seed to your kitchen! Most other greens are triple-washed in chemicals because they are grown in dirt, exposed to pollutants, and handled by many people as they are transported thousands of miles. In comparison, their products are grown in climate-controlled, clean, indoor environments and are handled using only the best practices to maintain their cleanliness.
Kosher Certified Kosher Certified – All of the greens are certified as adhering to the highest Kosher standards by KVH Kosher, one of the top Kosher certification agencies in North America. This serves as a testament to the purity and integrity of the farm’s operation.
FreshBox Farms grows indoors by using Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) where their modern-day farmers provide the perfect temperature, humidity, and lighting for their crops to grow hydroponically. Because hydroponics allow the plant roots to sit directly in water to receive nutrients, they use 99% less water than field farming. Their indoor growing system allows them to grow vertically on shelves using a much smaller footprint; depending on the crop grown, one of their 320 square foot farms can yield as much as nineteen-acres of farmland.
All of their produce is grown hydroponically in specially outfitted enclosures. Each unit operates on its own as a fully sustainable farm with its environment carefully managed through mechanical and digital controls. This means year-round quality food production without the need to transport food cross-country. A clean growing environment also means no need for pesticides or herbicides.
Their seedlings start off as tiny little plants neatly contained in cork-sized blocks. They grow all of their seedlings themselves from carefully selected, non-GMO seeds. From there they are planted in a hydroponics system and nurtured, to grow to larger full sized plants for harvest.
Harvesting & Packaging
Each vegetable is harvested using their proprietary system, by their Harvest team, who wear gloves to prevent contamination. The produce is then packaged locally and shipped locally – ready to go on store shelves often within hours!
