Country Lights Soy Candles

Country Lights Soy Candles keep the fire burning.

Based in Leland, the Riskedal family began making hand-poured candles from a soy/petroleum mix as a hobby in 1999. They have since switched to 100 percent soy and today make more than 100 scents at their centennial farm.

Each 12-ounce jar candle comes with a single soybean on top, representing the family’s allegiance to farming. They also offer travel tins and votive candles, and partner with local FFA chapters for fundraising.

For a list of scents, ordering information and fundraising opportunities, visit countrylights.net or call (815) 495-3500.

    I used to work out of the Farm Bureau building in Galesburg, IL. I bought candles for everyone in my family. Just found a box of them I packed away for later, that later has been over 8 years. I guess it pays to clean and reorganize.
