Company History

Lappe's Bee Supply (pronounce Lap-ees Bee Supply)

   The Lappe family got its start in beekeeping in 1978 when Kenny Lappe Sr. retrieved a swarm from inside a farmhouse wall. He discovered a deep interest with honey bees from that one hive and over the next few years he increased the number of colonies and began his commercial beekeeping operation.

   In 2009 Kenny Sr. retired and Kenny Jr. took over the business, keeping bees for honey production. In 2015 we expanded our business to become Lappe's Bee Supply and Honey Farm LLC and started selling beekeeping equipment and supplies. We manufacture all of our bee hives and wooden frames at our location in East Peru Iowa.

   Lappe's Bee Supply and Honey Farm LLC offers Colony Cash Rewards to give you 2.6% back from every purchase made to use on your next order with us, plus we offer weekly sales and additional savings.

   We are dedicated to helping beekeepers around the world. If you ever have any questions regarding beekeeping, or you are concerned about what your bee hives are doing, please feel free to give us a call or send us an email; we are always happy to help you!

From all of us here at Lappe's Bee Supply and Honey Farm LLC,

Happy Beekeeping from Lappe's Bee Supply!
