MCKINNEY, TEXAS – September 5, 2023 – In honor of National Honey Month, Nature Nate’s Honey Co., the number-one branded honey company in the U.S. and producer of 100% pure, raw & unfiltered honey, has donated funds to the Department of Entomology at Cornell University for the fifth consecutive year. As with previous donations, Nate’s investment will go toward honey bee health and pollinator research undertaken by the department. 

“We are honored to continue our partnership with the incredible researchers at the Department of Entomology at Cornell University to strengthen bee health, build on best practices for pollination and ultimately improve the future of our ecosystems,” said Nathan Sheets, President and CEO of Nate’s. “This year, the research team published several pollinator protection guides to reduce pesticide risk to bees. This type of research and information is critical to ensure honey bee populations survive and thrive.”  

The Department of Entomology, part of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at Cornell, has many programs that support the research of honey bee health under its Pollinator Network. The Pollinator Network is a multidisciplinary group of researchers, extension personnel and students that work to understand wild and managed pollinators around the world. The Pollinator Network is a leader in bee research and prioritizes working closely with U.S. beekeepers to address real-world problems, including the impact of pesticides on the honey bee population and honey supply. 

“Support from Nate’s is extremely helpful for ensuring our research is the best it can possibly be, and so the results can be quickly disseminated to beekeepers, conservationists, policy makers, and the public, said Dr. Scott McArt, associate professor, Department of Entomology at Cornell University. “We’re proud to continue our partnership with Nate’s, who we feel is playing a tangible role in improving pollinator health in the USA.” 

The partnership is part of Nate’s Long Live the Bees corporate responsibility initiative that supports honey bee health, educates future generations of students and advocates for responsible and sustainable beekeeping practices. Nate’s also supports honey bee health programs at other leading universities across the U.S, which make significant contributions to bee research and practices.
