Welcome to Devon sea salt , A new venture producing the only sea salt in Devon.
We believe we are the first and only sea salt producer in England to only use nature to produce our unique sea salt .
It all started with a love of the sea and an interest in natural products. We have been producing sea salt for our own use for a few years then realised there was no one in Devon producing sea salt commercially.
At the end of 2017 we decided to start work and make Devon sea salt a reality.
Our process of producing proper honest sea salt is traditional with a hint of modern and it is this approach which gives our salt its character and appearance with a punchy taste of the sea. Our salthouse uses no commercial boilers & no machines in fact no mass production methods at all , everything is carried out in the traditional way by hand by us and using just nature to produce our sea salt .
Sea salt production is a slow process and cannot be rushed , we can only harvest the salt crystals when they are ready not before . It is this time taken which makes sure that the salt we produce is enriched with the natural minerals from the sea water and this produces a good solid crystal structure , because of this process we do not need to add chemicals or anti clumping agents like many salts on the market, Our sea salt contains only what is found naturally in salt water & nothing else.
All of our sea water is collected from the South Devon coast line and the salt is harvested within our small family run salt house overlooking the river Tamar . The process we use to produce our fresh crisp sea salt is always evolving to ensure we are as environmentally friendly as possible while retaining our true hand harvested approach .
Here at Devon sea salt we produce to quality over quantity .
We take great pride in only collecting sea water when tides & conditions are just right, sometimes collecting up to 2 miles off the coast when needed on board our small workboat seasalt 1 . This is to make sure we start with the ultimate ingredient to start with. All of our salt is hand harvested and produced within our salt house in small individual batches , we do not do mass production but we do do quality
