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 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 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 18 kgs (40 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

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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • I was completely amazed and surprised at the amount of honey that came out. It was easy to use and there was very little disturbance to the whole hive.

  • 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.

  • Wishing you guys a very happy 3rd birthday. 

    My husband bought me a one day beekeeping workshop as an early birthday present. I was a great day, learnt heaps, and got a one-on-one day with John from Eezybeez. He came over to visit my hive an meet my bees. He tells me I have happy bees.   No honey yet but it's going to “bee” worth the wait… Loving my Flow Hive.
