Flow Frames

Our revolutionary Flow Frames are now available for purchase separately to be added to your existing hive. Modify your honey super, or build one from scratch, to convert your hive and experience the ease of harvesting with Flow.

Invented by father and son team Stu and Cedar Anderson, our patented Flow Frame technology is the most significant advancement in beekeeping since 1852. It is now possible to simply turn the Flow Key and watch as pure, untouched, unprocessed fresh honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar. 

See sizing options and instructions on how to modify your super below.

The Invention / How It Works

Often referred to as the “Beekeeper’s Dream”, Flow was created out of a desire to make harvesting honey easier for the beekeeper and to lessen its impact on the bees.

“I really didn’t like squashing bees or disturbing the hive when harvesting, so I thought ‘there has to be a better way'."
- Cedar Anderson

For those that don’t know, harvesting honey used to be pretty labour intensive. After a decade of tinkering, our patented Flow Frame technology is the most significant advancement in beekeeping since 1852. It is now possible to simply turn the Flow Key and watch as pure, untouched, unprocessed fresh honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar.

Sizing Options

Our Flow Frames are available in 4 sizing options to give you the flexibility of tailoring your Flow setup to exactly suit your needs.

If you have an existing 8 frame Langstroth hive you have the option of adding 3 Flow Frames or 6 Flow Frames to your super. For beekeepers who have an existing 10 frame Langstroth hive, it is possible to add 4 Flow Frames or 7 Flow Frames to your super.

Choose 3 or 4 Flow Frames to create a Flow Hybrid setup. This option allows you to combine Flow technology with traditional wooden frames in the Super, giving you the opportunity to experience the ease of harvesting with Flow and the ability to collect delicious fresh honeycomb.

Alternatively, fill your Super with 6 or 7 Flow Frames to optimise your honey harvesting potential.

 

Modifying a Langstroth Box for Flow Frames

Click here to see videos and a guide for modifying a standard 8 or 10 frame Langstroth Super box to allow you to fit Flow Frames, it should take you 1 to 2 hours to complete.



How much honey can I harvest?

Each Flow Frame holds approximately 3 kg (6.5 lb) of unprocessed honey when full, 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.

For more information on honey collection see our FAQ.

Precision Manufacturing & Maintaining your Flow Frames

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.

Store Flow Frames in a dry, cool, dark location out of direct sunlight when not in use. You can find further information on cleaning recommendations and pest treatment suitability in our FAQs.

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

  • In 2014 I had the pleasure of testing the Flow Frames. The bees quickly accepted them and, in less than two weeks, capped 40 pounds of honey. It was quite exciting to see the first bit of honey appear at the outlet, then make its way down the tube into the jar. Mesmerising.

  • We have a diverse plant/ flower area and the honey was amazing- so many flavors. I've read the negative comments and have to disagree. Great product.

  • I put the flow hive honey super on my hive on July 10th, 9 days ago. Much to my amazement I looked through the side window and saw that the outside comb is about 2/3 filled.
    The flow hive is a brilliant innovation, and makes producing honey incredibly easy for the beekeeper, and easy on the bees.
    A friend who looked on was in awe, and is now considering purchasing his own flow hive!

  • I cannot begin to tell you my sense of achievement today when I harvested my very own honey for the first time. I would like to extend my gratitude to Stuart & Cedar and the team at Flow Hive for making this possible.
    My whole approach to gardening has changed as a result of my beekeeping hobby, every flower now has a new purpose, I love that fact that the bees are so abundant and productive.

    Life is great!
