Know your farmer: Ian Fraser purifying beeswax at Tweedle Bee Candles

Ian Fraser of Tweedle Bee Candles, Tweed, purifies 50,000 pounds of beeswax from Eastern Ontario and Quebec a year. He also makes moulds for candles and his wife Jo-Ann makes high-quality beeswax candles. She uses white cotton, wicks which burn well as the beeswax is so pure. Ian runs workshops on purifying beeswax, making moulds and candle making.
