“This has all come about because of our love for the bees and an acknowledgement of how important they are, not only to the food we eat, but to all life on Earth.”
- Stuart Anderson

- Cedar Anderson
Included with the purchase of any Flow Hive is our Bee Supported package – phone support, Live Q&A streams weekly, prioritised email and live chat. In addition, our online course contains all the beekeeping knowledge you need to make you a confident, knowledgeable beekeeper.
All timber included will be in useable condition, however as the name suggests, you may find scratches, dents, and minor imperfections such as small timber knots in the woodware. You may need to tinker a little or make minor adjustments with a chisel to assemble your hive but once it’s together the bees won’t know the difference!
With Flow’s patented technology you can harvest honey from individual frames directly into your jar – no blending or processing required. Enjoy pure, unadulterated honey that captures the unique seasonal variations in color and flavor, from your very own backyard.
The Flow Hive 2+ base is specially designed for pest management, ventilation control and functionality. Including spirit levels for gaining the optimal hive set-up, a multifunctional tray for hive observations and applying pest treatments, and ventilation controls to suit every climate.
Highly requested by the Flow community, the Flow Entrance Reducer is handy for protecting against predators and robbing, reducing drafts in cold climates and can be used to seal the hive entrance for short periods when relocating your hive.

Our premium Flow Hive 2+ includes extra features to make taking care of your bees even easier, and is manufactured using western red cedar (Thuja Plicata). Sustainably sourced in North America, cedar is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure.
Cedar is often used as a hive timber in the USA, UK and other regions, because of its durability and insulative properties.
The wood includes beautiful, rich colour variation ranging from yellowish-white colour to a pale brown through to a richer dark brown. As this product is made from naturally grown resources – each hive will be slightly different in character. You can maintain a natural timber finish by oiling or staining to accentuate its natural colour variations.
Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby which when approached with knowledge, skill and dedication can be incredibly rewarding.
It is important to understand some basic safety guidelines to ensure that your beekeeping experience is a safe and positive one.
Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
