Client Feedback

In 2020 we lost 75% of our crop here at Whitehall Vineyard, this came as a result of no frost protection. This year in 2021 we purchased 1,560 12-hour candles from the Crop Candle Company, which we lit over 20 nights of hard-hitting frost throughout April, subsequently saving this year's crop. We found the candles quick and easy to light, with the vegetable oil wax being more user and environmentally friendly.

I confess to being sceptical about using bougies first time round and especially about getting them from a new supplier. However, all our concerns were put to rest from the outset. … the 12hr candles) were first rate.. !incredibly easy to light…Little smoke and burn time was as expected. We will certainly be going back for future needs.

We trialled 120 candles against our more regular supply of buggies from France. We were impressed. The Crop candles lasted longer for sure,
We found them very easy to light…. We also particularly like the refill capability that has been added this year.

The communication and pricing was clear and transparent. The candles effective and really easy to light. We found that the stated burn
time wasn’t far from the 12 hours stated so we were able to get at least two fairly long burns out of each candle.
