Sea. Sun. Salt.
At Maine Salt Farm, we source and produce premium, solar evaporated Maine sea salt made using the fewest inputs possible.
We have been providing hand-crafted, high quality, solar-evaporated Maine sea salt to our customers since 2015. Our finishing salt starts as cold, clear water drawn off the coast of Maine, filtered, then solar dried in evaporation houses. Over the production process, the crystallized salt is hand turned and meticulously graded for grain size and consistency. No added anti-caking agents, no added iodine. Using only the sun, this ancient process yields a finishing salt with a pure and wild merroir.
Care for the planet.
At Maine Salt Farm, we believe the health of our planet is up to us. That’s why we aim to bring you the best Maine sea salt imaginable using as few inputs as possible. Our salt is proudly made in evaporation houses using only the power of the sun, and nothing else. This keeps the production footprint as small as it can be.
Maine has an incredibly deep maritime heritage, and we're humbled to be part of its storied Blue Economy. Our goal isn't just to produce the best salt products, we believe businesses can have a positive community impact too. We buy services and products locally, work with Maine companies on innovative projects, & participate
in educational programming whenever we can.
Let's face it, humans are much better at getting things done when we work together. That's why collaboration is a core tenet of Maine Salt Farm. We're huge fans of putting differences aside so that we can effectively work with and learn from others to improve our craft and help grow Maine's sustainable food systems.
Sea. Sun. Family.
Our company is family owned and run. The partners are Chris and Eliza Rauscher, who once upon a time decided to start making salt in Maine, and Chris and Billie Cary, a creative couple with extensive experience in Blue Economy development and trade.
Beyond Maine Salt Farm, we're parents, we're surfers, we're skiers, we're chicken owners, we're food lovers, we're students, we’re community members and advocates for the planet, but at the end of the day, we're just passionate Mainers.
Growing in a community.
Maine Salt Farm is a proud member of the New England Ocean Cluster and is thankful to have the support of its collaborative network.
