A Salty Tradition
Martha’s Vineyard Sea Salt is the Vineyard’s first operating salt works in nearly 200 years.
Before the invention of modern-day refrigeration, salt was essential to life on Martha’s Vineyard — and throughout the colonies. Salt preserved food, made it more palatable, and was used to tan hides and pack fish for trading — all important to the Vineyard’s economy.
According to the “Dukes County Intelligencer,” the first known salt works on the Vineyard was up and running by 1778. By 1807, salt manufacturing was the island’s second largest industry.
MEET YOUR FARMERS
Chief Salty Strategist
Part geek, part farmer, and 100% able to “make meaningful conversation with wallpaper,” Heidi is co-owner with Curtis of Down Island Farm, LLC. Heidi is passionate about living local and reviving the tradition of making sea salt on Martha’s Vineyard. She draws inspiration from her entrepreneurial father, Milton Feldman (d. 2007), her mom, Joan Turits Feldman, and sisters (Sharon Rowe of ECOBAGS™ Products, Inc. and Ellen Ornato of The Bolder Company™), and from Curtis, the love of her life for 35 years.
Farming is in Curtis’s blood. Raised in the Connecticut river valley, his family farmed over 20 acres for their own use. Lucky for MV Sea Salt, he is also a master carpenter. When not working for the South Mountain Company, Curtis builds things for the house and farm – like a hoop house for edibles, renovating a cabin to serve as a barn, pens for the animals, and a wood shed. He most recently designed and built the solar evaporator.
With Heidi as taster, Curtis also develops MV Sea Salt’s flavor varieties like Oak Smoked. If it weren’t for Curtis, the world would not know about the joys of MV Smoked Oak sea salt on peanut butter!

Salt potatoes are a regional dish of Syracuse, New York.They are a staple food at fairs and barbecues in the Central New York region, where they are most popular. Potatoes specifically intended for salt potatoes can be purchased by the bag along with packages of salt.⠀
The Syracuse area of New York has a long history of salt production. Salt springs located around Onondaga Lake were used to create consumable salt that was distributed throughout the northeast via the Erie Canal. Salinated brine was laid out to dry on large trays. The salt residue was then scraped up, ground, and packaged.⠀
Salt potatoes originated in Syracuse and comprised most of a salt worker’s daily diet. During the 1800s, Irish salt miners would bring a bag of small, unpeeled, substandard potatoes to work each day. At lunch time, they boiled the potatoes in salt brine. #WikipediaToldUs
