Our Salt Farm

On the Ocean in Kona, Hawai‘i

About Our Salt Farm

Ancient Hawaiians began to populate Keāhole Point in the district known as Ho‘ona, the westernmost point of Hawai‘i Island, about 1,000 years ago. Well known for its ocean resources, that historic reputation would eventually manifest itself in the establishment of the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) in the early 1970ʻs. Today, NELHA is an 877 acre facility for the research and commercialization of alternative energy, ocean minerals, Deep Ocean Water and marine life conservation. The NELHA "campus" is home to our 7-acre facility where we make unique salts, nigari, nigari supplements and neutraceuticals.

Our salt farm is located at Keāhole Point, Ho‘ona
