    Hi! May I sell kefir grains in Virginia? Online? Retail? From home? It’s not intended for consumption, but put in milk, will ferment it, making kefir, which I can’t sell because it requires refrigeration. (Not interested in getting certified now, dog has run of the house and kitchen.) Thanks so much! @david

    • Unfortunately I’d say no, that likely wouldn’t be allowed. The law specifies which items are allowed (as opposed to allowing all nonperishable foods), and kefir grains fall outside of that. You can try contacting your local ag or health dept, but they will likely tell you that you need to use a commercial kitchen.
