Born from the waters of a 400-million-year-old sea, these salts capture the terroir and tradition of West Virginia’s Kanawha Valley. In 1817, William Dickinson first tapped into an ancient ocean below the Appalachian Mountains, transforming this mythic brine into a flourishing industry.
Seven generations later, siblings Nancy Bruns and Lewis Payne carry on the legacy of J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works, using all-natural, sustainable processes to harvest this distinctive salt. In Malden, West Virginia, the former "salt making capital of the east," Nancy and Lewis draw pristine, mineral rich brine from a single well. The brine is then evaporated in small batches in hoop houses, using the hot West Virginia sun and mountain breezes. The resulting crystals are harvested and packaged by hand, yielding an extraordinary American salt in three grains: grinding, fine, and finishing.
J.Q. Dickinson is family-owned and Nancy and Lewis believe in treating the earth and environment with care that will allow their family and yours to live off the land for many years to come.

How We Ship
Our products are always shipped so they will arrive at your door in optimal condition! We’ve carefully selected packaging options that have minimal impact on the environment without compromising on food safety or quality.
For perishable orders, we line our shipping boxes with Tempguard - a unique, padded insulator made of 100% pre-consumer recycled paper material. We further control the temperature with recycled kraft paper fill and non-toxic frozen gel packs. In the summer months, we may include dry ice to ensure fresh delivery in very hot weather.
Note: Please join our efforts to be mindful of our environment and extend the life-cycle of our packaging, by recycling your shipping box, Tempguard liner, and kraft fill (all 100% curbside recyclable!). Store the gel packs in your freezer and reuse to keep your next picnic or road trip fare cool.
