About Us

Inspired by the Ocean

Inspired by a life long love of the ocean. Each flavor of salt we make tells a different story about a little piece of Maine and what we love so much about our state.

Female Founded

Slack Tide Maine is headed up by Aunt and Niece team Cathy and Lauren along with childhood friend Sarah.  We are a woman owned and operated small batch sea salt company in southern Maine.

Family Operated

When the seas are calm and the tide is high, you can find Lauren, Cathy, and Sarah out on the ocean with their families harvesting water and cherishing family time together.

A Testament To Our Client Experiences

I received an order a few days ago and I wanted to let you know that I think you have a phenomenal product!
Absolutely love it! Been telling everyone I can about your salt!


I just want to say that this is one of the coolest local businesses in the area. I tell people about it all the time, and I use your salts in recipes daily. There's something that feels really special and grounding about using salt harvested right here where we live. It makes us feel connected to the sea. Really inspired by the business you've created.

Not only is Slack Tide Sea Salt carefully and thoughtfully harvested and dried (in Maine), but its incomparable in taste and quality!! To say it's simply salt would be an understatement...it has a complexity to it unlike any other salt."
I didn't know how special salt could be until I tried yours. It is our top shelf Salt and we treasure it.


Upta camp smoked salt:
I didn't know salt could smell exactly like a bba smokehouse !!!

“The plain sea salt was amazing. Perhaps the best salt I have ever had.
Nice and useful for finishing dishes.”
