Our Story

Hello and welcome to Sperry Beeswax! We're Mark and Becca Sperry, the husband-and-wife operation behind the wax.

Our family has been keeping bees since the 1920's. In fact, Mark's grandpa (P. Everett Sperry) was actually a Kansas state representative. In the 70’s writing letters to Congress on behalf of the U.S. honey producer, trying to get better prices for the honey produced here in the USA.

He raised a few hives of bees on his farm, as well as various other animals. His sons Ken and Bryan started Sperry Apiaries back in 1961. Mark purchased the business from Ken (his dad) in 1993, and we run it right here in North Dakota to this day.

Mark handles the honey side of the business, while Becca carefully filters and cleans each block of beeswax. Our beeswax comes from our own bees, and nothing is outsourced. All that to say, we sincerely hope you enjoy our beeswax, and we appreciate you checking out our website!

Best regards.
