GIVEAWAY: The Hayloft Shops Sea Salts and Cookbook

By  29 Comments

Mother-daughter team JoAnn and Becky Schotthofer, owners of The Hayloft Shops, have been serving customers in the Peoria area since 1970. What began as a small business in the Schotthofer family barn has grown into three different shops in the Mossville Historic District, including a gift and gourmet shop in a historic barn, an antique shop and a women’s apparel shop.

The special Hayloft Herb & Garlic Sea Salt, however, has remained the shops’ bestselling product during the last 30 years. Customers love to use it for everything from grilling and salads to soups and vegetables, and JoAnn and Becky even developed a cookbook full of delicious recipes using the salt.

For more information, visit or call (800) 900-9495.

We’ve partnered with The Hayloft Shops to give away some of their sea salt along with the companion cookbook. Enter below for a chance to win!

    we do meat on a rotisserie over open fire and love to use seasonings of all kinds—sometimes the meat is a little to smokey but taste great anyway especially after a few cold ones

    I like to use seasonings to add flavor since I have to follow a gluten free and dairy free diet. Sometimes those recipes lack in flavor!
