Florida Beeswax Candles In Mom Care Packages: Supporting Local Farmers

Today I am going to share with you my passion for buying from local farmers and small businesses.  Have you ever thought about visiting a local farmer and seeing what they have to offer?  You can use a great website called Local Harvest and find out what is growing in your neck of the woods.  I usually am looking for organic foods such as vegetables and eggs.  But, in my crafting business I was on the look out for beeswax! 
Buying beeswax over the internet is very expensive because it is heavy to ship.  Supporting local small businesses is very important to me because it helps them stay in business and supports the local economy.
I found a great farm in Deland that grows all kind of things and has beehives.  They do not spray their flowers with any harmful pesticides, which is very important for the health of the bees and it makes great natural honey and beeswax.  All of my beeswax candles are made from chemical free beeswax bought here in my area of Florida.
                  Introducing my Mom Care Packages made with natural Florida beeswax!

This is a rear find! Congratulations!
(Some local businesses bring the product they sell, it is not guaranteed that they produce what they sell)

I used to live in a much smaller town and go to the farmer's market every week. I am so sad to say that I haven't been to one in quite some time. Maybe this year I'll make more of an effort.
