Our Story

We are Liz Blanchette and Tammy Zinck, friends with a salt obsession that began when we were looking for local sea salt to use with the herbs and veggies we were growing in the backyard. We couldn't find any Nova Scotia or Atlantic Canada Sea Salt! And now...

We make Nova Scotia sea salt.

We regularly visit our favourite beach, from May to October, fill dozens of jugs with Atlantic sea water, and let the sun work its magic in our salt houses in Dartmouth.

We don't boil the sea water. It takes a lot of energy to boil the ocean. We only use solar energy from the sun. We produce beautiful, moist salt crystals from May to October. We smoke some with applewood chips and leave some natural. We have grown from 1 salt house to 4 salt houses and we plan to build even more! We still get excited when we see the beautiful crystals form at the bottom of the pan on a warm sunny day.
