"Salt is born of the purest of parents: the sun and the sea." - Pythagoras
Earth & Sea Farm, home of Florida Keys Sea Salt.
We are an aspiring permaculture adventure in the Florida Keys, surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea. The farm is located on land adjacent to the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge, on the edge of the remains of wilderness. We specialize in 100% solar evaporated Florida Keys Sea Salt, Florida Keys Moringa and Key West Natural Sponge.
Earth & Sea Farm aspires to provide the highest quality produce to feed the body and nourish the spirit. All systems are developed with the goals of sustainability, resiliency and regeneration while maintaining an optimal balance with the natural world. The land is host to an abundance of pollinators, including honey bees and tropical produce of moringa, papaya, banana, soapnut trees, leather fern, mangroves, buttonwood and of course, our artisanal, 100% solar evaporated, hand-harvested sea salt.
our artisanal sea salt
The ancient art of harvesting solar-evaporated sea salt has been revived on Upper Sugarloaf Key by Midge Jolly and Tom Weyant. Living off the land to the highest degree possible, they farm in accordance with the rhythm of the tides and phases of the moon. Sun, wind and gravity all play their parts in the alchemy of creating this traditional culinary grade sea salt. The mysterious alchemy of atmospheric conditions cause subtle differences in shape, flavor, moisture content and texture of each salt harvest.
