When the super is full you can harvest up to 9 kgs (20 lb) of Flow honey from the 3 Flow Frames in the Super. This is in addition to the 4 x frames of honeycomb that you can also harvest.
Each Flow Frame holds approximately 3 kg (6.5 lb) of unprocessed honey, this can increase if the bees really build each frame out. Bee prepared with extra jars in case your first one overflows!
Watch as fresh, pure unfiltered honey Flows from the back of the hive directly into your own jars. No filtering, no mess.
Collect fresh honeycomb from the Flow Hive Hybrid (with a beesuit on!) as a tasty snack, excellent as a gift to friends and neighbours. Chew the honeycomb until all the honey is gone, then melt down the wax for lip balms, shoe polish or even make some wax wraps of your own.
Serve a sliver of warm honeycomb with soft goats cheese and a dry cracker. Heaven!
A great thing about harvesting with Flow technology is that as soon as honey is ready and capped, you can harvest, meaning that it may be possible to harvest several times throughout a nectar flow– or leave it until you are ready!
