Our mission is to provide plants and animals alike with the natural supplements necessary to enrich their health and help them prosper. With the beautiful rocky coast of Maine in our backyard, Saltwater Farms is able to fulfill this mission by harvesting and processing one of the most abundant natural resources in the North Atlantic... the sea plant Asocophyllum nodosum, more commonly known as Seaweed or Kelp. We have developed a variety of products with the highest quality additives, all with organic seaweed fresh from the cold North Atlantic Ocean as their key ingrediant. Whether you choose liquid seaweed fertilizers for your plants or 100% natural kelp meal as a nutritional supplement for your pets, you will take comfort in knowing you are providing an environmentally friendly means of improving their health.
Seaweed harvested from the cold dark waters of the North Atlantic contains a typical analysis of over 60 chelated minerals and trace elements, 21 amino acids, 12 vitamins and 4 essential plant growth hormones. Given seaweed's many natural benefits, coastal gardeners have used it as a natural fertilizer for centuries not only to yield healthier, more vigorously growing plants but also to protect the land and water that surrounds them. In addition, research shows that fertilizing with seaweed extracts makes plants less susceptible to environmental stress such as drought, disease and damaging insects.
When used as a daily feed supplement, kelp (or Ascophyllum nodosum) is a rich, balanced source of essential minerals, vitamins, and complex amino acids. Kelp meal has been recommended by leading veterinarians, breeders, and animal care professionals for both pets and farm animals.
