FLOW HIVE TAKES OUT AUSTRALIA’S
HIGHEST DESIGN HONOUR
2016 Good Design Award of the Year.

Less labour, more love

Turn the Flow Key and watch as pure, fresh honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar. No mess, no fuss, no heavy lifting, and no expensive processing equipment.

Through the clear end-frame view, you can see when the honey is ready without opening up the hive. The extraction process is so gentle, the bees barely notice at all. Our revolutionary Flow system makes the extraction process far less stressful for the bees and so much easier for the beekeeper.

TESTIMONIALS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

  • 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..

  • We did our first harvest on Sunday, we yielded 8.5 kg from 3 frames, so we are very excited.
    We used simple glad-wrap over the bucket to stop potential pilfering. And not knowing for sure if you 'just turn a tap and get honey' we put it straight into a bucket with a gate and a sieve on top, just in case. We then poured out of gate from bucket into jars in the kitchen, in the a/c.
    Beeutiful!

  • Wanted to let you know how it works in the heart of europe…
    I had to wait for a long time seeing the honey coming out but it’s worth it.
    Thank’s soooo much for this fantastic innovation!

  • It has been really exciting to be included in the first automatic honey-harvesting device in history. I am really proud of what the Andersons have achieved. Cedar gave me the first jar of honey ever harvested in this way and it is still in my pantry, too precious to be eaten. Congratulations, you two.

Flow® Hive
“the beekeeper’s dream”…

Many years ago, I went down to one of my beehives, which I knew was a pretty wild hive, so I put on the bee veil and pressed the gaffer tape back on the mesh that covered the rips in it. I put on my gloves and fired up the smoker and blew plenty of smoke into the hive. When I opened the lid my suspicions were confirmed. The bees weren’t happy about being disturbed.

The hive was packed with bees and it was near impossible to get the honey out without squashing lots of them. The bees became grumpier and started to sting me through my beekeeper suit. I put the hive back together as quickly as I could, squashing more bees as the lid went on and ended up running away across the field, thinking, “There has to be a better way!”

So, my Dad Stuart and I set to work on a decade long task of inventing the beekeeper’s dream. We are so happy to say that now you can harvest the honey with virtually no disturbance to the bees. It’s a dream come true for us and we are actually quite surprised ourselves at just how well our Flow™ Frames work. After a decade of work, it’s so exciting to be finally bringing our Flow™ hive invention to the world. CEDAR ANDERSON
