  Salt Farm and Bay Salt

Salt farms are located in the coastal areas, in which you produce salt using solar heat, wind and other natural forces and concentrating the salty sea water.

The salt produced from natural mud-flat (full of red clay containing a variety of inorganic minerals, including germanium) salt farms is bay salt.
Excellence of Bay Salt produced from Korea’s West Coast

Bay salt is made by confining and naturally drying the sea water in a certain area using the sun, land and the wind. It is a treasure repository containing various kinds of microelement minerals and is crucial for human survival.
Bay salt produced from Korea’s West Coast is one of the world’s finest, with lower salinity, pH closer to alkaline and rich in inorganic minerals such as Ca and Mg.

World’s Top Five Salt Farms

The North Sea in Europe / Eastern Coast in Canada / Georgia of the U.S. East Coast / River mouth of the Amazon River and finally Korea’s West Coast: Korea’s West Coast is an ideal location for salt farms because the sea water gets evaporated easily as it is affected by relatively dry westerly, low sea depth of less than 100m and a wide tidal range.

World’s Top Five Salt Farms

Why Mud Flats are Important

1. It purifies all the contaminants and wastes discharged from the land, and prevents the natural disasters.
2. A diversity of life forms live in the mud flats, making them the repository of ecology, and multiple marine lives dwell in the mud flat.
3. It is the location where high quality salt (bay salt) necessary for human survival is produced.

World’s Finest Bay Salt Production Areas

The bay salt produced in Korea’s West Coast, one of the world’s finest mud flat and a repository of minerals, is made by drying up the sea water using the sunlight, the wind and the thermal heat.
The bay salt contains a diversity of microelements required for the human body and is essential for maintaining life.

Salt Farms

It is assumed that people first encountered the salt from the sea by discovering it left on the caved-in rocks near the coastal area as they are dried by natural sunlight.

As such, salt farms refer to the ground on which you can get the salt using sun, wind and many other natural forces and energy. The table salt is extracted crystals created from further concentration of the salt water obtained from the salt farm.

The salt farms you extract salt using natural forces and energy are referred to as bay salt farms and one third of the world’s total salt production (approx. 100 mil. tons) is bay salt. Most of salt farms in the world use such method for their salt and especially widely in coastal areas of Mexico, Australia, and the Mediterranean where the weather is mild.

Those salt farms have in place reservoirs, evaporating ponds and crystallizing ponds in sequence near the coastal area so that the sea water obtained can be stored, evaporated for concentration and extracted after crystallization.
