Mann Lake Ltd. Beekeeping Supplies

The past 32 years have brought about many changes to Mann Lake and the beekeeping industry. With the passing of time, we are as determined as ever to ensure the survival of the honeybee for all. Regardless of the number of hives you have, we at Mann Lake have the same goal in mind as you.... to keep this "natural pollinator" flourishing.

About Us | Beekeeping Supplies | Mann Lake Ltd.

How We Started

Jack and Betty Thomas started Mann Lake in 1983 because they couldn't find the quality beekeeping supplies they needed for their own beekeeping hobby. They began selling supplies out of their garage, but quickly found a lot of other beekeepers were underserved as well. Realizing the need was bigger than their garage they moved the business from their home to the city of Hackensack. Since then, buildings have gone up in Minnesota, California, Pennsylvania and Texas as the company has grown.

Having no children of their own to pass down the business to, Jack and Betty decided to transfer the ownership of the business to their employees to carry on what they started. They knew that when you're working for yourself and for your future, you work that much harder to innovate and add value to keep your customers happy and coming back.

Our Hackensack, MN branch is still the hub of our business. We manufacture the majority of the products and bee feeds that you receive, here at the home office. Because of our ability to keep all of these processes "in house" we can ensure the quality of the products that you purchase. Our sales and customer service staff in all of our locations work together to make sure your experience with us is nothing short of great.

The Mann Lake family has grown again this year with the opening of a full-service facility in Marshall, TX. Our new Texas facility will be producing our liquid feed products for pickup or delivery, as well as offering a 4,800 square foot retail store for customers to shop.

We are truly excited about this new location, and the additional access that it will give to our customers to the quality products that they expect from Mann Lake.
