Established in 1985,the Marklin Candle factory is situated on fourteen acres along the bucolic Contoocook River. This land is now also home to Marklin's Windhover Farm and retail store, Der Markt at Marklin. Our retail store carries a wide variety of premium gift items including our very own Marklin Candle and Windhover Farm products.

Windhover Farm has apiaries in several local New Hampshire towns which are maintained by co-owner Martin Marklin. Since its inception, Marklin Candle has utilized tens of thousands of pounds of beeswax to make its liturgical candles. It wasn't until Martin began the practice of beekeeping that he began to realize the richness of the gifts of God's most honored creature. Keeping bees has transformed his art, his craft, and his life.

For more than thirty-five years, Marklin Candle Design has provided handcrafted beeswax candles to thousands of churches and hundreds of cathedrals around the globe. Internationally renowned, Marklin Candle has been called upon to make candles for two former Popes, and most recently, for Pope Francis during his visit to Ground Zero in New York. Elegant designs, masterful craftsmanship, and the fact that every candle is fashioned by human hands throughout its fabrication sets a Marklin candle apart.
