Nautical Kelp Farms

Jake Patryn and his wife, Morgan started Nautical Farms together in Machias, the community where Jake was born and raised. The pair started the company with sustainability in mind and a deep desire to return to their roots in Maine after living in the mid-west.

Not only is seaweed a nutrient rich superfood-full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it aids in keeping the Maine waters it’s grown in pristine. Nautical Farms kelp is harvested by hand off the coast and Jake and Morgan use this versatile sea vegetable in everything from recipes to beauty products.
