Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

The patented Flow Frame technology allows you to tap honey directly from your hive. Made in Australia from durable, highest quality, food-grade, BPA and BPS-free plastic - Flow Frames have taken the beekeeping world by storm.

Crafted from premium Western Red Cedar, using precision manufacturing and paired with a full set of 6 Flow Frames, this is one sweet hive! 

We decided to use Western red cedar (Thuja plicata) as it is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure, and is sustainably sourced in North America close to our major customer base, reducing transport mileage.

Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each hive will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.

 



How much honey can I harvest?

Harvest up to 18 kgs (40 lb) of honey when the super is full. Watch as fresh, pure unfiltered honey Flows from the back of the hive directly into your own jars. No filtering, no mess.

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!

For more information on honey collection see our FAQ.

Safety, Care & Maintaining Your Flow Hive

Apply a coat or two of timber sealant to bring out the lustre of this beautiful timber, and help it last even longer.

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.

Please note, different regulations apply in different regions. We recommend all beekeepers contact their local primary industries & agriculture authorities before setting up a hive to ensure that they know local guidelines and how to follow them. For further information read our FAQ here.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • Greetings from denmark. You did it - now we know it works. We just did the first harvest last weekend. Harvesting approx 10 kg honey.

    The only thing was that it didn't last for longer because it was so funny and a great joy that we have looked forward to for a long time. We even kept a close eye on the frame close to the inspection window and was surprised to see NOTHING happening when we opened the cells..

  • Hello Flow crew,
    Just thought I’d let you know we harvested from our Flow for the first time down here in Apollo Bay in Southern Victoria and even though we’ve seen all the videos, we were still gobsmacked when the honey just came pouring out into our jar!

    We got around 10kg after just a month of them using it (getting ready to shut it down for winter) and are enjoying giving away jars to friends. What an amazing innovation – the kids and I harvested in shorts and thongs… here are some pics!

  • The labor for the Flow is a lot less for harvesting but the same as for as management.

    Harvesting honey from the Flow Hive is a joy instead of heavy work and takes less than an hour.

    You still have the personal contact with your bees through inspections and such as you do with an other type hive.

  • We really love having the flow hive and how it brings so many people together. Mild winter in Brisbane Australia (Coorparoo) has allowed us to harvest 6kg over the last month from 2 frames. All remaining frames appear to be full also. We have now taken over 40kg since we started robbing in January. Has been a real success and the hive is thriving.
