We moved to Virginia in 2015 with dreams of owning our own livestock and raising our son in a place with plenty of room to run. After working with our cousins who raised incredible grass-fed and finished beef and lamb as well as pasture-raised pork I realized how quickly the prime cuts of meat sold and how the tallow and lard often still filled the freezer. I was determined to find a use for the fat, after all that animal took two years to harvest and had an immense amount of love and care go into raising it.

​After attempting soap making- and failing miserably- I went back to the drawing board and after much research I learned that the first candles were made using animal fats and byproducts. I was frustrated and determined...I set out to create a candle that burned just as clean as soy and palm but didn't use any glyphosate soaked soy or unregulated palm wax, burned with a hemp wick instead of cotton because it is more sustainable to grow, burned clean and evenly, and smelled amazing using nothing but essential oils and premium grade phthalate-free fragrance oils.

People have been burning lard and tallow candles for thousands of years. When you purchase and burn an animal-fat based candle you are supporting the nose to tail movement; ensuring that all parts of the pig or cow are used, not just the filets and bacon, which are literally mouth watering, but the fat is just as important! I am passionate about supporting family farms that believe in sustainable farming and raising their animals out on pastures eating grass-the way nature intended.

I have since moved back to Wisconsin, welcomed two more babies into our family, and completely rebranded our business as well as networked with farmers to ensure I am still using sustainable grass-fed animal fat. I am so very grateful for all of the orders - and reorders!, reviews, and kind words about my products; I have big aspirations for Farmers Candle Co and invite you to join in on my journey!
