A Note from Nate: Our Vision

At Nate’s, our vision to be the most trusted honey company isn’t just what we say – it’s what we do. It’s because we know that each orange-labeled honey bottle is an opportunity to earn your trust.  

When Nate’s was founded more than 25 years ago, the honey category was confusing and misleading. How could customers truly know – and trust – that the honey they purchased from their favorite grocery store was pure, raw & unfiltered honey? How could they trust that they were serving their family and friends the best, highest-quality honey?  

Today, there are lots of honey companies to choose from. Yet, as the number-one branded honey company in the U.S. and the honey category leader, we remain as committed as ever to providing pure, delicious honey that’s as close to straight from the hive as possible.   

It starts with the bees.  

Much hard work, love and care is put into producing Nate’s honey. We’re proud to steward thousands of Nate’s Hives and work with a broader community of trusted beekeepers to carefully source and blend 100% pure honey varietals to get the best, most consistent taste. We take care of the honey bees, and as a sort of thanks, they give us the most delightful gift of pure honey. 

We test, test and test again.  

While we’re known for our best-tasting honey, our strict testing standards ensure every bottle is as simple and pure as it is straight from the hive. This is our purity guarantee: to provide an unmatched level of care and precision that any honey bee would be proud of. 

We test for all the important things: pesticides, antibiotics, rice or corn syrup adulteration and more test, so we can be confident only the highest-quality honey fills your honey bottle. 

We also double-check our work. We invest in a partnership with Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider, to confirm our purity guarantee and provide third-party validation of our testing processes.  

Honey Gives Hope 

It’s our nature to share and make an impact with families and communities across the country. We invest in critical bee health and research with leading universities, and through our Honey Gives Hope program make financial and product donations to food banks, other non-profits and demands-based initiatives. 

We’re honored to share our resources with others. It’s possible because of our Nate’s fans who trust us to confidently deliver highest-quality honey to their homes and fulfill our vision to be the most trusted honey company.  

We thank God for allowing us to serve your family.  


Relentless Quality.
Ridiculously Good Taste.
Confidently, the Most Trusted Honey.
