The 30-Second Story
Meet Nate
Nate

It all started with a mission

Nathan Sheets got the nickname "Nature Nate" in college because he was a nature lover and outdoorsman.

After graduating from college and owning his own ad agency, Nathan began serving in the ministry. He has journeyed on 100+ mission trips all over the world with the goal of helping others. He was also one of the driving forces behind the global “I Am Second” media campaign that highlights stories of hundreds of lives transformed through the grace of Jesus Christ.

In 2010, he decided to make honey his full-time endeavor, and life has never been sweeter. As Nate likes to say, “The Lord has blessed us so we can be a blessing to others.”

Honey helps us
help others

For us, honey is more than just a food product, it’s a natural resource. Honey means so much beyond making that yogurt sweeter or that sandwich gooier. Simply, it helps us help others.

This is why Honey Gives Hope is so important to us. It’s a philosophy that we put into practice every day and a way of giving back that is as pure, raw and unfiltered as our honey.
