This is an interesting lesson on how sea salt is gathered and process for making it usable. At this location you can also buy the various flavors of sea salt. Great for gift giving.

The owner is friendly and the free tour is short but informative. The products they sell are not cheaper than sold at the local Hannaford, but we purchase some anyway. 30 minutes well spent

Did not know what to expect. We are hooked on the Maine Sea Salt and needed to visit even if an hour and half away. This operation is locally owned small business and nothing fancy. Small sign in the front yard, white house and small...More
