el fuego and crop candle co
about us

The idea for El Fuego Fire Pits was born in the vineyards of Europe. 

Our sister company Crop Candle developed a unique heating system designed to keep vines warm during the bitter spring frosts. They used environmentally-friendly bougie candles made from 100% vegetable wax that burned safely and sustainably, generating enough heat to protect crops in even the harshest conditions. 

In 2020, as the pandemic lockdown forced people to stay at home, we started to see increased demand for domestic fire pits that were versatile, affordable, and easy to use.

So, using the same technology developed by Crop Candle, we designed the El Fuego Fire Pit, the first product of its kind to use sustainable vegetable-based fuel. 

It really caught people’s imagination throughout that first year, and demand has continued to grow.

We are really excited for what the future holds!
