Welcome

A 7th generation salt-making family harvests an all-natural salt by hand, from an ancient ocean trapped below the Appalachian Mountains of the Kanawha Valley in West Virginia.

Our Salt1

Our Salt

Our salt making is a unique and innovative process, completed by hand without the use of big machinery and chemicals.  We work to enhance the natural properties of the salt, using the power of the earth and hand-made tools to produce an extraordinarily pure product.

Our Story

Nancy Bruns and Lewis Payne are seventh-generation salt-makers; one could say salt-making runs in their blood.  They have returned to their family’s 200-year-old farm to harvest a rare salt from deep below the majestic Appalachian mountains of West Virginia.

Our Philosophy

We believe in pure, sustainable food and living. Our salt is completely organic and naturally derived.  We are family owned, and we believe that treating the earth and our environment with care will allow our family and yours to live off the land for many years to come.

Thank you so much for the chance to be able to try it."
