For The Lovers Of A Lit Candle

Gippsland Custom Made Candles

Welcome to The Gay Farmer Candles.

I’m Tim, The Gay Farmer. Yes, I do live on a farm with sheep. I am also gay. All my candles are hand poured on the farm. Made from 100% soy wax and I do my best to source everything from Australian businesses.

Originally from Gippsland, I have lived around Australia and moved back to the Latrobe Valley after 15 years in Melbourne. The move came at a great time, as I suffer from PSTD and other mental health issues. This is all due to where I worked in Melbourne. I was bullied, harassed and discriminated in the workplace.

So after years of trying to find an alternative treatment, I found candle making. It relaxes me and lets me forget about everything that happened to me in Melbourne for a few hours.

Now I have a brand that shows that I am not afraid to be a proud gay man in the country. It is also allowing the young LGBTIA+ community that you can be out and proud. Own a small business and be supported by the wider community.
