Maine Sea Salt Co.
The first salt works in Maine in over 200 years
As the first salt works in Maine in over 200 years, our company brings forward the tradition of harvesting pure and natural sea salt, directly from the the ocean! We make our sea salt naturally, through the evaporation and reduction of sea water in solar green houses and shallow pools. Our solar greenhouses, known as "salt houses" are filled with fresh sea water from the Gulf of Maine.The sea water evaporates naturally, from the heat of the sun and the drying effects of the wind blowing through the greenhouses. Over a period of time, fleur de sel floats on the pool surface, then grows and sinks to the floor to form the salt bed.
