Our Story

The Saltworks Site

The Saltworks property was first put to agricultural use in the 1890s and has manufactured salt since 1901. Cargill has proudly owned the Saltworks since 1978. While salt production remains an important part of Cargill’s operations, a unique opportunity exists to help alleviate some of the region’s generational challenges by reimagining a new future for the Redwood City Saltworks facility.


Salt Production

The mechanical harvesting of salt occurs in crystallizers ‒ engineered beds that are rolled, graded, sloped and compacted. Today, this is a working manufacturing site.


Cargill’s Legacy

Donating more than $150 million in land value, Cargill conveyed over 40,000 acres to public wildlife agencies.
