The Salt Team
Tell us about Duxbury Saltworks
We hand harvest sea salt from the pristine waters of Duxbury Bay, MA in small batches. Our salt processing takes place on a historic 10 acre property in the heart of Duxbury, MA.
Instead of developing the rare large acreage, we are restoring the land as a historic site that honors its' history and reconnects us back to the land, sea and animals. We also have honey bees on the property and are regrowing the peach and apple trees on the site that are well known and loved in the area.
