Meet the Makers

We're Erinn and Johnny Boitano, the husband and wife team behind Farmer's Daughter, Beehive Mercantile. We're an artisan beeswax candle and apothecary studio located in Thorp, Washington.  All of our products are made by hand in small batches using pure and natural products. We were founded in 2012 with the intention to create useful, beautiful and naturally beneficial products.


Erinn's family had a small farm when she was young. She is the daughter and grand-daughter of many things. Her grandparents were Farmer's, Logger's and above all things Pioneer's. The spirit of the American Pioneer is strong in her soul and her heart was ingrained at an early age with the desire to be a part of a process, the whole process start to finish. Making products in the apothecary tradition by hand, and with intention and care like those who came before us, seems only natural. We like to think that we are a part of restoring the traditions of how things used to be.

Our product line is centered around beautiful beeswax candles. Beeswax candles are the finest candles to touch, burn and breathe. Not only do they burn long and bright but they pull dust, allergens and toxins from the air, making them a superior choice. We believe strongly in the power of bee products and the health and healing they bring. All of our products are 100% Natural with an emphasis on local, organic and sustainable ingredients. We never use any chemicals, preservatives or synthetics. Everything is created in house, from formulating and designing products to packaging and shipping. We're a proudly Made in America company!

Thank you for your support and God Bless!
