The farmer’s son may have chosen a different path than the generations before him, but he still understands the importance of building a life based on hard work, authenticity and the honest values demonstrated by his parents and grandparents. Instilled at an early age, these traits just stick when you’re from a farm

Farmer’s Son Co. has been built on these said traits. Quality products created with integrity, craftsmanship and high attention to detail

All Farmer’s Son Co. candles are created and hand poured in small batches in our Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada studio

From an early age, Dan knew that he wasn’t cut out to be a farmer. The final straw may have been the time that he tipped the family grain truck into a slough

Taking the skills instilled into him by his hardworking folks who were passionate about their small family farm, at 23 he packed his truck and ventured into the big city where he spent a decade working as a retail buyer, brand developer and product designer for several regional and national retailers

Unhappy with the idea of spending the rest of his career working in a windowless fluorescent lit office, he got to work building Farmer’s Son Co. after realizing that there might just be something to his love for fragrance and candle making hobby

Starting with a hundred bucks and a stubborn work ethic, Dan set to work building and bootstrapping Farmer’s Son Co., spending the first four years of the brand working on his own in small studio spaces throughout Winnipeg

In early 2021 he relocated to his current lab and creative space located in Winnipeg’s West End where he and his now team of three continue to develop each fragrance in-house, pour every single piece by hand and banter daily about all things pop culture

A lover of travel and connecting with artisans and indie brands around the world, Dan’s passionate about bringing unique and thoughtfully crafted product to his dedicated clientele

Farmer’s Son Co. products are sold at select retailers across Western Canada and Mexico as well as online to clientele across North America
