The Salt Team
TELL US ABOUT DUXBURY SALTWORKS
We hand harvest sea salt in small batches from the pristine waters of Duxbury Bay, MA. Our salt creation takes place on the beautiful seaside campus of Island Creek Oysters. What was once a scientific research laboratory has come alive again — and the connection seems like fate! Our salt lab now transforms our beautiful bay water into pure, hand-harvested sea salt.
ALL ABOUT THE DUXBURY SALTWORKS’ TEAM
We are a team of women: mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters who are all about living vibrant lives. We value health, wellness, eating delicious food, connecting with nature and our natural habitats, learning, and honoring the gifts land, sea, and air.
WHAT INSPIRED DUXBURY SALTWORKS?
Duxbury Saltworks was founded by Lily Leedom, an entrepreneur, wife, mom, dog-enthusiast, athlete, and seeker of better health. Embracing the beauty and restorative nature of coastal living, Lily recognized the abundance of this natural resource and the countless health benefits of salt — an ancient mineral. Tinkering with pots of slowly evaporated salt water in her kitchen, Lily ultimately found the right formula that resulted in beautiful, pure salt that had the consistency and texture she was seeking. Realizing that she had struck flaky gold, she mobilized a group of talented women — and Duxbury Saltworks was born!
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT DUXBURY, MA?
Duxbury is a beautiful coastal town on the South Shore of Massachusetts. There is so much that is wonderful about the natural habitat of this area — from the world-renowned oysters to the incredible sailing programs and gorgeous beaches. Duxbury is a historic place with a strong sense of its maritime history — boat making, shellfishing, maritime researching, and of course, salt making! Duxbury waters are incredibly clean because of the lack of local industrialization, the intense monitoring of the water quality, and the millions of oysters that filter the Bay every day.
TO SUM US UP…
Duxbury Saltworks’ mission is to inspire, delight, and present quality, tasteful sea salt to our customers. In so doing, we seek to encourage health, wellness, the pursuit of delicious food, and experiences both in nature and with one another.
