MCKINNEY, TEXAS – September 19, 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, continues its investment in the UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.  

“We are proud to support the Honey and Pollination Center at UC Davis and their efforts to bring together a diverse group of researchers to focus on honey bees, honey and pollination,” said Nathan Sheets, President and CEO of Nate’s. “At Nate’s, we believe we have a responsibility to make a positive impact on the future of bee health. It starts with research and education, and we’re honored to support healthy hives.”  

Since 2020, Nate’s has supported the efforts of the Honey and Pollination Center, which seeks to better understand how honey adulteration affects beekeepers, honey production and, ultimately, our food system. UC Davis’ Department of Entomology and Nematology has been ranked number-one nationally and continues to lead the way in agricultural innovation and sustainability, in part by promoting pollinator-related research and conferences.  

“We deeply appreciate the generous gift from Nature Nate’s to support the UC Davis Honey and Pollination Center,” said Dr. Ned Spang, University of California, Associate Professor, Food Science and Technology and Director, Robert Mondavi Institute. “This type of support is essential to advance our work on public education and outreach related to the production of high-quality honey and honey-derived products.” 

With its Long Live the Bees initiative, Nate’s invests in programs that keep hives healthy and honey bee populations thriving, so everyone can enjoy the unadulterated goodness of real, pure honey. Nate’s also supports honey bee health programs at other leading universities across the U.S. To learn more about Nate’s Long Live the Bees initiative, please visit
