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.


We're Kosher!

As the only kosher craft saltern (sea salt producer) in the United States, we work diligently to uphold rigorous standards of purity.

Marblehead Salt is certified as Kosher by the International Kosher Council under the rabbinical supervision of Rabbi Yossi Lipsker of North Shore Chabad in Swampscott, Massachusetts.  Our Athonite Finishing Salt is certified as Kosher for Passover.

Isn't it a lot of work to become a certified kosher food processing facility?

Yes.  It requires effort, thoughtfulness and then diligence.

So why do we do this?  

Quality.  In a world where anyone can rent a commercial kitchen we built the first saltern North of Boston in over 100 years.  We invested in our community and the people of the North Shore.  Marblehead Salt Co. answers to a higher authority.  Not only can the widest variety of people possible can enjoy our salts and other food items, we do this to assure our clients that Marblehead Salt Co. products will always be made according to the highest standards possible.

Purity.  Integrity.  Authenticity.

Marblehead Salt.
