Wild & pure sea salt
boat harvested from deep atlantic waters
We created Barrier Islands Salt Co. to revive the lost art of salt making in Virginia and to celebrate the wild beauty and purity of the waters surrounding our barrier islands. We’ve spent over three years perfecting our sea salt and the result is a bright white, flake sea salt with a clean, oceanic flavor and a sweet finish. We’re extremely proud to be Virginia’s first coastal saltworks since the 1700s!
We believe that our sea salt is the purest in the U.S. because our water is harvested around the Virginia Barrier Islands. These islands are part of the Virginia Coast Reserve, the longest expanse of coastal wilderness remaining on the east coast. This Nature Conservancy program protects thousands of acres of pristine salt marshes, oyster reef sanctuaries and eelgrass meadows, resulting in the purest water on the east coast, and likely far beyond.
