We get our seawater from a private beach here on San Juan Island. We pump the seawater into a large water tank on the bed of our truck to bring it to our farm.
We only make salt during the summer season when it is hot and dry. These greenhouses are heated only by the sun!
After about a month, the water has gone away leaving a beautiful carpet of salt crystals of many sizes and shapes!
A sneak peek into our salt kitchen where we finish drying our salt on these racks before sifting, grinding and jarring it up.
