THE HISTORY BEHIND GREEN HOLLOW ORCHARD CANDLES
Our company started In January of 2000 at the request of friends & relatives. How? you ask. Before that I made candles for them as Christmas & Birthday presents. They would constantly ask me to sell them some. I would say I just make them for gifts. Then supplies became more difficult to acquire from non-wholesale companies. One local suppler cut back on selling supplies to reduce competition from their own candles. Also everyone keep after me to go into business. So I did! This made it possible to buy wholesale and mix my own scents from scratch. It took about four months to get the thing rolling but it has worked out very well.
WE'RE AN ORCHARD TOO!
Over thirty years ago when we bought our house it had some 50-year-old fruit trees on the land. I restored them and planted some new ones. I started selling the fruit but the first year we did not have a name. That caused people to have trouble finding us again. So I had to come up with a name. Our backyard is a hollow with deep topsoil and is almost always a deep green even in dry weather spells. That is how Green Hollow Orchard got its name. We still sell our fruit today about 150 to 200 Bushels a year raised in our backyard.
