Churchfields Farm is the home of Droitwich Salt, the only brine spring salt made in the UK. This heritage salt was famous in Roman times, but production stopped almost 100 years ago. In autumn 2017, we proudly partnered with Wychavon, our local council, gaining exclusive rights to make this historic product.
Today, we harvest Droitwich Salt by hand at SALSA accredited Churchfields Saltworks. The gentle process of crystallising the natural brine to pure salt uses renewable energy further adding to our sustainability ethos on the farm.
Our salt is sold in a range of flavours, including our collaborations with the Michelin Starred Carters of Moseley. Winning numerous awards, our salt is available in over 100 stockists across the UK. Stockists include Harvey Nichols plus our own shop of course!
Award winning heritage
Salt was an internationally valuable resource in Roman, Anglo Saxon and Norman Times, when King John granted Droitwich Spa a Royal Charter in 1215 based on the importance of its brine.
The town was subsequently one of the most prosperous towns in Medieval Times right through to the 20th Century. In the mid 19th Century Droitwich Salt won international recognition and as stated on the historic label was awarded a ‘Premier Class No 41’ designation.
Today, we are once again using this unique resource to make one of the purest, natural brine spring salts in the world.
