MCKINNEY, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 Department of Entomology at Cornell University. The donation will go toward honey bee health research that is being undertaken by the department.
“We’re committed to serving the entire honey ecosystem, from beekeepers to global communities, beginning with the bees,” said Nathan Sheets, Founder and CEO of Nature Nate’s. “We’re proud to support the Entomology Department at Cornell University and their research that will directly impact the health of bees and beekeepers across the U.S. for many years to come.”
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 collectively work to understand wild and managed pollinators across the world. The Pollinator Network is a leader in bee research and prioritizes working closely with US beekeepers to address real-world problems. Cornell CALS offers more than 20 majors for research and study, ranging from community and rural development and environmental and natural resources to applied economics and the life sciences.
“We are so excited to see honey companies passionate about bee research and dedicated to maintaining a sustainable beekeeping industry,” says Emma Mullen, Honey Bee Extension Associate at Cornell University. “This generous support from Nature Nate’s Honey Co. will allow us to investigate the issues contributing to colony declines and develop creative solutions to protect honey bees.”
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 University of Georgia, 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 prestigious universities have undertaken,” continued Sheets.
