Salt makers and other good people helping keep the fire going at Laesoe Salt

At Laesoe Salt we work on multiple fronts - some are in charge of making the salt, others of storage, shop and delivery. The administration runs management and sales and two of the regular staff are busy telling the story of the Laesoe Saltworks to the public.
