Candle Bee Farm™ began as a brick and stone cottage nestled high on a rural ridge. The gentle rolling acres are teaming with wildlife and natural beauty perfect for a healthy, spiritual and more natural lifestyle.
Gentle breezes, hilltop ponds and the abundance of locust trees, blackberries, wildflowers and clover make the place a honey bee heaven. Family history is rich with beekeepers and the tradition continues on this beautiful farm. Here the bees enjoy good health without the use of chemicals or refined sugars in the hives. This is in keeping with our simple lifestyle. In fact, we have found that this way of beekeeping actually yields higher honey and wax production in the long run. The bees develop a natural resistance to disease and pests resulting in health benefits and less work for the beekeeper.
We return the honeycomb to the bees each year. However, the high honey yields leave us with a lot of wax from the honey cappings. The cottage atmosphere lends itself to candle light and we demand candles that are non-toxic and do not make us sneeze! Thus began the candle-making endeavor.
100% beeswax candles burn brighter and up to 5 times longer than other waxes or wax combinations making them an exceptional value. Candle Bee Farm™ 100% beeswax candles are all natural and burn clean. The dinner tapers and plain pillars burn virtually dripless if kept from draft. The self-trimming wicks are sized for a proper burn and are all cotton with no synthetics or metals.
Every handcrafted 100% beeswax candle from Candle Bee Farm™ is a tribute to nature’s bounty. A man once picked up one of these beauties and exclaimed, “Wow, that’s no ordinary candle. You hold it and it touches you back!” The weight and velvet feel of pure 100% beeswax transmits the vibrational energy of the bees.
beesandhive We believe that 100% beeswax is such a marvelous natural wonder that the only improvement possible comes from the imagination of beekeeper artisans.
