About Us
Specializes in Artisanal Salt

One could say salt-making runs in our blood. We are seventh-generation salt-makers, brother and sister Nancy Bruns and Lewis Payne. We share a common love of food, farming, and family.We have come together to revive our 200-year-old family trade in Malden, West Virginia, and once again produce salt for our local communities and beyond. With our love of the land and our shared culinary passion, we have worked to produce a rare, small-batch finishing salt, harvested from the ancient Iapetus Ocean trapped underneath the mountains of Appalachia. The result is a pure, delicious salt sure to transform any dish.
Our salt is completely organic and naturally derived. We are family owned, and we believe that treating the earth and our environment with care will allow our family and yours to live off the land for many years to come. We use the power of Mother Nature to produce our salt, and are always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

We are passionate about our local community of Kanawha County, West Virginia, and will continue to work to support the initiative to encourage West Virginians to eat healthier. Awareness of the land and where our food is sourced is deeply connected to a healthy community. We donate profits from our farm-to-table event series “Celebrating the Season” to organizations that help this cause.
