Dorset Natural Sea Salt
The Dorset Sea Salt Company was founded in 2017 by Jethro Tennant, an obsessed seasalt fanatic. After reading about the historic and cultural relevance of salt production in Dorset, and visiting the natural salt pans on the East Weares of Portland, Jethro pondered how and why this local industry had vanished. Inspired, Jethro began to formulate the revival of Dorset seasalt.
Mineral rich and super clean seawater is collected from the Jurassic Coast by hand in order to ensure the correct amount of salinity. The seawater is then passed through a triple filtering system designed to preserve all of its natural goodness. After producing a concentrated brine, the seasalt crystals form in gently heated pans and are then hand harvested. The last phase is to drain and dry the sea salt in closely monitored drying rooms.
The Dorset Sea Salt Company aims to marry both ancient and new production methods resulting in exceptional, hand harvested sea salt.
The Dorset Sea Salt Company is supported by the Prince’s Trust.
The Dorset Meat Company
My partner told me about your company and we bought our first meat box last month. We both commented we've never tasted beef that good ever before. The regular mince has the right amount of fat in it to give you that flavour and the steaks are beyond anything else we've ever had even in top restaurants. We are customers for life now, supermarkets don't offer anywhere near this quality and it's about on par with the higher shelf products in shops. Thanks for the updates by email these were helpful re deliveries etc. I've attached the belly pork & porterhouse i did last week - incredible!
First time shop online for meat but will definitely not be the last time. The meat received was excellent quality and, being local and grass fed an added bonus, and the service second to none. The sausages were absolutely gorgeous, best I've ever tasted. I thoroughly recommend The Dorset Meat Company to everyone and anyone.
Most grateful to find out about this during this period where food delivery is particularly challenging! I won’t be reverting back now, the meat we have had is excellent quality and tastes superb.. I did have concerns about delivery but it arrives in a very cold insulated box. Definitely recommend.
Fantastic company with providing great quality meat during such difficult times! I don't know how they do it but their meat tastes completely different from supermarket meat -- it's far more flavourful, juicy and fresh! Thank you Dorset Meat Company!
Produce and customer service are both exceptional. We no longer buy our fresh meat from the supermarket or butchers because it's simply not up to the job. We grew fed up of water pumped chicken breasts and beef that had no flavour. Every month we now order what we need and waste nothing. Highly recommend the roasting joints and whole chicken. Nick and Jane clearly love and care about their produce and it shows in the service we've had.
We founded the Dorset Meat Company to provide you with the finest grass-fed, outdoor-reared meat, produced sustainably and in harmony with nature. We care about traditional British farming which is why we work with 20 small, family-run farms based in Dorset and Wiltshire that produce really wholesome, natural meat. We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.

At the Dorset Meat Company, we work with 20 small, family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire that all work to produce ethically reared, nutritious meat, in a natural growing environment, in harmony with nature. Animals that have been allowed to grow at a natural pace and have not been rushed.
100% Grass Fed
Our ruminant animals enjoy a diet of 100%, pure, natural grass. Which is all they ever eat.
Our local countryside is rich in grassland. “Partly real, partly dream country” is how Thomas Hardy described Dorset. Over 40% of the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the steep ridges and chalk valleys lending the landscape a rugged beauty. Dotted around the Blackmore Vale, small farms raise traditional cattle breeds like Herefords, Aberdeen Angus and Ruby Reds. The areas of clay soil are rich in grass, wildflowers, clover and legumes, the principal food source for sheep and cattle for centuries. It is these natural environments, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, that help to support a wide range of wildlife and insects as an essential element of a vibrant, thriving ecology.
Nature in balance.
