Our 8 oz Tallow Candles are made up of only 3 ingredients: Grassfed Beef Tallow, Beeswax, & Essential Oil. We love the simplicity of the candles and how they have quickly become a farm favorite! We've recently added a leather strap to each one, which allows us to utilize the smaller pieces we are unable to use in other leather projects. You can be confident in burning our candles and having a little piece of our farm in your home.
Many customers choose to support our farm because of our zero-waste production system. Our vertically integrated production system allows us to manage our livestock from birth to slaughter. Meats, organs, and bones are sold to customers for consumption and hides are tanned for leather or dehydrated for pet chews. To complete this picture of full carcass utilization, beef fat is rendered on-farm to later be crafted into tallow goods like soaps, salves, candles, and moisturizers. It's said that the skin is our body's largest organ, so why not follow the same principles for skincare products as you do with the foods you consume?
Next time you are able to visit the farm, lodge in our cabins, or dine in our restaurant, we hope you visit our tallow room, located directly across the street from our General Store. You'll be able to see firsthand how these products are made.
The fat used in our skincare products is from cattle that are Certified Grassfed by the American Grassfed Association, Rated a Step 4 in the Global Animal Partnership, Certified Humane and EOV (Ecological Outcome Verified) in the Land2Market Program.
