It’s not surprising children love beekeeping, especially when using Flow technology. Our hive observation features provide a window into the fascinating world of bees, while harvesting straight from the Flow Frames allows for the exciting opportunity to taste the different honey flavours stored within each frame.

Flow Hive technology drastically reduces the chance of being stung during harvest, however even the friendliest hive can get cranky sometimes.

Whilst sharing your beekeeping experience with children it’s important to ensure that you provide the best protection possible. Luckily it’s easy to Bee Prepared with our organic cotton kids suits.

This beekeeping suit is manufactured from our highest grade, unbleached, GOTS certified organic cotton and features an emblazoned Flow logo on its breast pocket. Equipped with durable, high quality YKK zippers, a fully removable fencing veil, plus anti-bunch elastic thumb and ankle stirrups– these suits are the ultimate in beekeeping protection.  Lightweight, ventilated gauntlet goatskin gloves complete the package, ensuring your child will feel secure from head-to-toe

Children should always be supervised by an experienced adult beekeeper.

What bee suit size should I pick?

Bee suits are designed to be worn over normal clothing, so we recommend you factor in your child wearing their suit with additional fabric underneath.

Safety & Care

Beekeeping is a labour of love. As with all animal husbandry, it’s a pastime which requires knowledge, skill and dedication and which carries with it inherent risks. Sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards when considering whether beekeeping is right for you.

Check out this Flow-sponsored safety pamphlet covering common beekeeping safety risks and first aid responses.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • Dear Flow hive Team, Guess what!

    Today I harvest my first honey with the Flow hive and it was so easy and Perfect and fast. It was SUCH a pleasure. A+ I like to have more flow frames for my other boxes...

  • Just wanted to let you guys know my Flow Hive has performed better than expected.
    The old timers in my bee club had a bit of prejudice on the Flow Hive but my videos may be bring them to the dark side. This is my first year to keep bees so maybe being clueless helped. It was very easy to harvest honey and the girls loved the box.
    A kudos to the durability of the Flow Hive both my hives made it through TS Harvey with banana trees on top & 4ft flood water under the platforms.

  • From Go to Flow in under three months! I have had great success with the Flow Hive- harvested four frames for 12 kg of honey.

    Read, study, use the Flow Forum, follow instructions and you won't have problems putting the Flow Hive together and getting bees to work happily and harvesting with no stress.
