FLORIDA KEYS SEA SALT ~ Earth and Sea Quality Natural Products for the Florida Key s since 1975.
WHERE WE ARE: In the wilderness of the Florida Keys; about 15 miles from Key West, on the bus line; bicycling, swimming, school track and more on island.

GOALS FOR THE FUTURE: Simplify systems, increase harvest of naturally occurring and garden produced foods on the land, complete some long delayed projects, restore gardens for family/helper food and marketing, return to composting without a wild rumpus of raccoons!; considering community composting, seek grant funding, improve web presence. SPECIFIC FARM PROJECTS: Restore and fence in gardens; bigger salt houses to increase yield; extend irrigation from salt water well to big salt house yard; relocate plants on the land, remove invasive species encroaching upon native acreage, trim and plant trees , restore and improve swimming hole; build websites, repairs to main house, garden and other buildings; complete cistern; cooking projects, build more salt houses, some computer projects. THE FARM FAMILY: English speaking Midge and Tom are committed to recycling and are organic where possible; farm cats (skittish), native Key Deer, wading birds, migratory birds, raptors and other endangered species on the land. CURRENT MOTTO: Simplify. Simplify, Simplify. WHO WE WOULD LIKE TO HOST: Progressive, cooperation minded individuals, couples (children and pets considered *smile*). Happily host volunteers all seasons. (PLEASE SEE ONLINE DESCRIPTION at wwwoofusa.org; search farms: EARTH AND SEA; FOR FURTHER DETAILS.)
We are a family owned SALT FARM. From 1975-2010 we were a landscape and irrigation contracting firm and since 2007 have been test marketing our salts and working to perfect our salt houses to harvest local sea salt in the lower Florida Keys. We seek interns for long term and are willing to host folks for shorter term for a larger work commitment.
We do not offer tours of the salt farm; only working internships. VISITING by appointment only and courtesy is appreciated.
May all beings benefit.
