Each water harvest requires we row out to find the best salt blooms off the coast of Marblehead.

Our salt is made according to a 1,600-year-old process perfected by monks of Mount Athos, yet prepared using local sea water from the Marblehead coast North of Boston.

We are one of the few salterns on the East Coast of the United States and the only one that uses ancient, monastic saltern methods.

Unlike mass produced salts, ours benefit from a seasonality and vintage that can only occur with small batch salts. Autumn, winter, spring and summer salts are unique in that they have distinct algal, current and saline bloom signatures.

We can also vary the minerality and the salinity within a certain tolerance for our more demanding customers providing a bespoke saline experience.

You may also notice the live taste quality and delicate crystalline structure of our fresh salt that melts right on contact. Because of the freshness of our salt, you can also use less of it which makes it perfect for those looking to cut down on their salt consumption.


Shipping Information

We are a small business in a world where "free second day shipping" has become a part of America's culture.  With due respect to, we just can't afford it.  We make the salt by hand and will do our best to get orders out as quickly as possible.

While many orders will ship next day, especially if the order is received before 4 PM Eastern Time, but please allow up to a week (in some cases of emergency like the Blizzard of 2015 perhaps a month!) for orders to be packaged and shipped.  Around holidays please allow for two weeks. We try to accomodate rush orders so just email us if you have a particular date by which you require your salt. We make, label and package the salt by hand.  It is a very customized product that takes significant time and effort for which we charge a fair price.  From a start of a boil until the salt is packed and ready to ship can take three to four days.

Theo doesn't have opposable thumbs so it's much harder for him to help pack and ship than it is to answer emails.

Orders ship USPS Priority Mail with tracking and insurance.

International orders ship USPS Priority International without tracking.

If you live in Marblehead, why not come to St. Nicholas and pick up your salt in person? We stock our salt at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church on 124 Pleasant Street in Marblehead, next to Mr. Katsoulakos the tailor and across from the donut shop.

Please send an email before placing an order with any special shipping requests such as tracking for international orders, different carriers or overnight mail requests (sometimes it's necessary and sometimes we can accommodate -- let's hope they're both the same day for you!). 

Shipping costs and credit card/paypal/internet processor fees are not refundable.
