  • Our Pick for Best Breakfast: Farmhouse

    We’re excited to spread the word and get the vote out for Best of the Lake 2016. We’re so proud of our community and local businesses, here on the island and across the water on the mainland. It’s a growing, thriving, creative and amiable community, with so many “bests” it’s hard to decide on favorites for the ballot!

    1458772035For Best Breakfast, however, a local favorite immediately springs to mind: the wonderful, warm, inviting, and absolutely delicious Farmhouse restaurant.

    Though relatively new, Farmhouse has already established itself amongst locals as a sustainable, farm-to-table, good food eatery and community gathering place.

    One of Kickstarter’s success stories, Farmhouse was launched by food industry veterans Lauren Schuppe and Gilpin Matthews with pledges of over 146 financial backers, eager to see their vision come to light. Their goal was both health and community focused: to contribute to the local food system of Madeline Island by providing local breakfast and lunch, growing produce for a true farm-to-table approach, and eventually providing fresh produce and fish in the winter months when food and resources are more scarce.

    Lauren and Gilpin's long term goal vision for Farmhouse is especially appealing: “A community center for food sharing and education will be born. Farmhouse will be a gathering place to share recipes, farming techniques and yes, last night's shenanigans.”

    It’s begun! Lauren and Gilpin’s passion for creating a balanced, sustainable food system for a healthy community shows through every lovingly prepared meal and morsel. Their recipes find ways to creatively incorporate seasonal ingredients sourced from community farmers, creating a simply delicious, wholesome menu and wonderful dining experience.

    If you haven’t stopped in Farmhouse restaurant, be sure to on your next visit to Madeline Island! And if you have, then we know you’ll want to vote for them as “Best Breakfast” in the Best of the Lake Awards. And don't forget "Best Shopping Experience" here at Madeline Island Candles!

  • New Beeswax Tapers

    taper-candlesOur new 10" Beeswax Taper Candles have been so popular at our store that we've added them to our website! Soon available in larger sets, they are currently available for purchase as a pair: click here to view.

    A nice centerpiece for the mantle or holiday table, these hand-poured all-natural taper candles feature the wonderful color and honey scent of beeswax and a cotton wick.

    Similar to soy wax, beeswax burns cleanly and with less soot and smoke than paraffin candles. Beeswax tapers are also recommended over paraffin tapers because of their long lasting burn time, a flame that will glow throughout your holiday!
