Salt Making in the Kanawha Valley: The Heritage of the J.Q. Dickinson Salt Works The seventh generation of the Dickinson Family in Malden has revived their salt making heritage to create an all-natural, artisanal salt organically gathered from a pristine, 400 million year old sea, deep below the Appalachian Mountains. Their small batch, hand-harvested, solar-dried salt is produced using environmentally sustainable techniques on the same farm where William Dickinson began making salt almost 200 years ago. Staff will share information about the company and their products and participants will have the chance to sample their homemade caramel with their salt. Their website can be found at http://www.jqdsalt.com/.
