HOW IT STARTED
Brad and Joyce began making candles as a hobby in 1999. At first, the candles were a soy/petroleum mix. After some experimenting, they were happy to go to a 100% soy candle. It didn't take long to realize that soy candles would become very popular. A local church youth program asked to use their candles for a fundraiser.
As they say, the rest is history.
They now sell tens of thousands of candles each year through numerous schools, FFA organizations, church groups, marathoners, and philanthropists throughout the United States. Their fundraiser is simple, efficient, effective, and profitable.
Country Lights Soy Candles, Ltd. is a family owned and operated soy candle business. Their "factory" is located on the Riskedal family's Centennial Farm in north Central Illinois. All candles are hand poured by family members.
They would love to hear from you and are more than happy to answer any questions or book a fundraiser. Your opinion matters to them!
