I'm Brady, founder and lead salt farmer here! I enjoyed a wonderful upbringing on the island, where I spent hours swimming in the cold, clean ocean. I'm a curious, lifelong learner and I got into this business because I was hooked on the magic of seeing salt appear out of nowhere in brine. Five years on, watching the first crystals start to form out of a new batch of seawater remains as exciting as ever!
Tyler is the older brother of the Ryan family, and has been a part of this business from very early on! He is in charge of all our product development and all our markets. He has developed the recipes and been the maker of our salted honey caramels, our bee balms, our bath salts and all of our smoked products. He has also been the smiling face at countless farmers markets!
Essine is the queen of the salt kitchen and shipping room. She is in charge of packaging, blending, labelling and getting product ready to ship out to your door! She is another one of us who grew up on the island!
Ian! The newest member of our crew! He is the ultimate everything man, leading up labelling, helping with salt harvesting and jar filling, helping Leah with her wedding flowers and so much more! And he does it all with a smile and some killer tattoos.
Hi, I'm Anna! I grew up here on San Juan Island and after many years away, returned home with my husband (a fellow islander) to raise our kids, Dexter and Shiloh. Of all the places we've lived and traveled, there is just nowhere as beautiful, in both environment and community. Though my background is in marketing and organizational leadership, it's my experience as an islander that connects me most to our business!
Hello! I'm Leah, wife to Brady and owner of a floral design company called Bloom San Juan! I have called Friday Harbor home for the last 5 years. I've come to love local food, local people and especially local salt! You can find me putting the popcorn salt on everything and constantly refilling my friend's and family's salt stashes. I love the beauty of the island, and I am so happy to be here with Brady and our growing family!
