    • Cavalla Studios is a local family and veteran owned candle company. They will be selling hand-poured natural candles at the event! Check out their site to read more about their story and purchase online! All of the soy candles are hand-poured by Brendan Hamm, who proudly served in Iraq. 10% of the profits go directly to Massachusetts Fallen Heroes, Home Base, and Ironstone Farm. Notably, the farm uses equine-assisted programs to care for our veterans with PTSD. The therapy horses have also been a source of healing and inspiration for Brendan's family. Cavalla, Italian for horse, was chosen for this little workhorse of a company.
