Nature Nate’s Honey Invests in Honeybee Program at University of Georgia
Number-One Branded Honey Company Continues to Grow Conservation Efforts to Support Research of Honeybee Health
MCKINNEY, TEXAS – Nature Nate’s Honey Co., producer of 100% Pure, Raw & Unfiltered Honey and the number-one branded honey company in the U.S., today announced its investment in the Honey Bee Program at the University of Georgia (UGA). The investment follows the company’s announcement of support to the Department of Entomology at Cornell University, among other programs.
“We’re committed to serving the entire honey ecosystem, starting with the bees,” said Nathan Sheets, Founder and CEO of Nature Nate’s. “With our manufacturing plant in Valdosta, along with the University of Georgia’s national partnerships, this was an easy decision to support a local program that brings so much to our industry. We believe their research will directly impact the industry and lead to advancements in the health of honeybees and education of beekeepers across the U.S.”
The UGA Honey Bee Program has a long history of improving honey bee health and management through applied research, much of which has been done side by side with beekeeper cooperators, as well as through region-wide leadership in adult continuing education.
“Support from Nature Nate’s will enable us to expand our research programs, and we’re proud to have the company as our newest partner,” said Keith Delaplane, MBE, Director of the Honey Bee Program, University of Georgia. “This donation will also enhance the ongoing extensions of beekeeping knowledge in applied research and continuing education at the University for years to come.”
This investment is part of a larger conservation effort by Nature Nate’s. The company provides industry-leading testing capabilities, free of charge, for its network of beekeepers to ensure that their honey is free from adulterants like pesticides. The company will also support other apiary programs at leading universities, including Cornell University, University of Texas at Dallas and Texas A&M University.
“To us, education is the key to finding a solution to the bee population issues and ensuring the health of bee colonies across the world, and we are proud to support the groundbreaking research that these universities have undertaken,” continued Sheets.
