The Flow Hive Classic 7 Frame was created in response to customers’ requests for a larger Flow Hive to fit 10 Langstroth frames.

Popular with beekeepers in cold climates, having an additional Flow Frame in your super provides more room for your colony, and has the added bonus of collecting more delicious Flow Honey!

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 bee hive and into your jar.

Crafted from sustainably sourced Araucaria the Flow Hive Classic 7 provides plenty of space to keep your colony thriving.

PLUS, includes FREE Flow Veil – valued at $15!

The Flow Hive Classic 7 frame is the ultimate in easy honey harvesting.

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 bee hive and into your jar

Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

The patented Flow Frame technology allows you to tap honey directly from your bee 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 sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria, using precision laser manufacturing and paired with a full set of 7 Flow Frames, this is one sweet hive!

Araucaria is a premium Australian native cabinet timber, highly regarded for its stability & durability. To ensure it lasts a long time outdoors, two good coats of quality weatherproof sealant such as exterior house paint is a must. You can be as creative with the paint job as you like!

Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resource – each bee 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 21 kgs (44 lb) of honey when the super is full. Watch as fresh, pure unfiltered honey Flows from the back of the bee 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

We recommend painting Araucaria hives with at least two coats of good quality exterior paint for the longest and most effective protection. Read more on treating your Araucaria Flow Hive here.

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.

  • So love the exquisite ease of harvest. Saw variations of honey color as it came out depending on which section it was in. We tell anyone that will listen how great the Flow Hive is...
    We also have the traditional Langwith hives, but there is NO comparision!
