We are sea salt farmers. We make solar evaporated, mineral rich sea salt in the most beautiful place on earth: San Juan Island Washington. We also make killer seasonings that your customers will love. Our best selling products are our Natural Sea Salt, our Popcorn Blend and our Madrona Smoked Sea Salt. In fact we sell more of our Popcorn Blend than the next 3 products combined and my kids are addicted to it! My name is Brady Ryan and our business began with a formative experience: when I was in college I made sea salt for Christmas gifts with my friends by boiling seawater on my parents stove. It took forever, made a huge mess and wasted tons of electricity. But seeing those crystals form hooked me! Fast forward to 2012 and I had been working on a vegetable farm outside of Seattle, and that memory drifted back to me. I figured I might be able to use my skills at building greenhouses to make salt a better way! My now wife, Leah, heard me discussing this idea and not long after shared a food network video she saw about a business doing just that. I was in an impulsive mood and decided to try it out myself! We built our first evaporation house in August of that year and made our first batch of sea salt. In December we took some jars to a farmers market and made $700 on our first day. We were stoked! Fast forward to now and we currently have 14 evaporation houses, producing around 20,000 lbs of solar evaporated sea salt a year. We are having a blast!
