Swift Farms handcrafts pure beeswax candles locally in Mansfield, Connecticut. As a small family apiary, they harvest raw honey and natural beeswax from our hives each year.
Their raw honey has not been heated and retains all of the original nutrients and natural flavors. Because they harvest in small batches throughout the season, you can sample the different floral varieties, each with their own distinct color and taste. The nearly clear honey of early spring has a light, almost floral taste while the darker honey of late summer tastes more robust.

The color of pure beeswax varies, and ranges from ivory to golden yellow, depending on the plants that honeybees collect pollen and nectar from as well as the time of year. Swift Farms’ beeswax is a deep golden yellow and is naturally highly scented. Beeswax candles last longer, burn brighter and bring clean, beautifully scented light into your home with all the benefits of a non-toxic product. Burning a beeswax candle acts as an air purifier by releasing negative ions into the air that improve the quality of the air. No other fuel produces these beneficial negative ions when burned.
Their candles are handcrafted with pure, renewable beeswax and all-cotton wicks in Mansfield, CT. At Edge of The Woods Market, we love supporting local suppliers, we carry Swift Farms’ superb tea lights, ornate pillars and figures in various sizes; we also offer their sought-after beeswax blocks for you to use in your projects.
