Nellie's Acres :: About Us

Nellie's Acres is located in the small rural farming area of Canterbury, New Hampshire. Canterbury's history includes Canterbury Shaker Village. A beautiful rural country area in which I'm very proud to live! My Granny and Grandaddy owned and farmed the land that is now where I make my home. Nellie is my Grandmother and my website is named in remembrance and out of my love for her! I'm very proud that I am carrying on our family tradition of farming! My home is filled with my babies (my animals) and I do love this simple life! I do work full time at our local hospital and my life is very full with crafting, my family life, work and the farm!


I began making candles several years ago as a quiet way to relax and fill my home with wonderful scents. Many wonderful local people came to know and enjoy my handmade Offerings and they encouraged me to start selling my handcrafted Primitive Offerings to you on the Net. Recently that I decided to sell my handmade Candles, Soaps, Lotions, Fixens and Pantry Cakes publicly and I hope that you like them! My quaint small country town of Canterbury affords me the luxury of the time to provide my Customers with individually designed and created handmade Soaps, Lotions, Primitive baked Pantry Cakes, Farm Fresh Fixens and Bakery Style and Primitive Candles. Each handmade candle is safely overscented, hand poured, scented and packaged. My handmade Soaps are handoured, handcut and cured here in my home on the farm with time and attention to detail. Each creamy handcrafted lotion is blended and scented! Farm fresh fixen's are hand blended and cured! My Primitive Pantry Cakes are individally baked and hand rubbed with fragrance beautiful spices to ensure a gorgeous handmadePrimtiive Home Decor Offering that you will be proud to display! I love and truly enjoy the down-home country feel of my handcrafted work and hope you will take my Candles, Soaps, Lotions, Bath Salts and Primitive Pantry Cakes into your home to enjoy as I have.


Please rest assured that your order from Nellie's Acres will be handcrafted with love, time and attention to detail with every handmade Grubby or Primitive Candle, Handmade Soap, Lotion, Farm Fresh Fixen's or Pantry Cake being individually designed and created fresh at the time in order to provide my Custumers with the finest handmade product I can provide! Farm fresh
goodness is what I love to provide!


When not making handmade Candles, Soaps, Lotions, Fixens and Primitive Pantry Cakes, my time is spent with my many farm animals or "farm friends", quilting or just sitting on the back porch with family and friends.
