Just like the brood boxes that are included with our Flow Hive Classic Cedar 6, these premium 8 frame Langstroth deep brood boxes can be used for brood, or as an additional conventional honey super.

Made in the US from durable, sustainably sourced North American Western Red Cedar, these brood boxes are the ideal addition to our Flow Hive Classic Cedar 6 frame.

What size do I need?

Confused about what size to get? Don't worry we get it! Our Flow Frames are slightly wider than traditional wooden brood frames, so for an 8 frame Langstroth hive, 6 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. This brood box is compatible with Flow Hive Classic 6 or 8 frame Langstroth hive

Need an extra brood for your Flow Hive 2?

This brood box has a minor timber width difference to the one included with the Flow Hive 2. If you have Flow Hive 2 in Cedar, you can find a matching brood box for this product here.

NOTE: It is possible to stack this product with either our Cedar or Araucaria products. Langstroth sizing can vary up to a few mm so depending on the timber width of your existing hive, these brood boxes may not sit completely flush, however, this won’t impair functionality. For more information, please see our FAQ.

This product is also available as a Bee-Grade item, in 8 & 10 frame sizing, with and without brood frames.

Or check out our Araucaria Brood Box, which is the same size as the western red cedar brood box. Read more on Araucaria timber here; You may choose to stain the Araucaria to match the colour of the cedar, then coat with some weatherproof sealant or alternatively, you can get creative and paint the brood box as a feature.

Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

This brood box is crafted from premium Western Red Cedar, using precision manufacturing and paired with a set of 8 foundationless brood frames.

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 box will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.

 

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

  • Our first harvest of 2 frames. 11lbs of honey.
    We have never been so amazed at how easy it is using the flow hive.
    Filling jars with pure honey straight from the hive is not only easy but pure genius!
    No disturbing the bees and no processing of frames. We sold 25 jars to Family and Friends.
    Their astonishment of the taste was all we needed to know that we made the right decision in going with the flow hive!

  • Within 2 days of the harvest, the bees had removed the cappings and resealed the cell walls with wax, ready for the next batch of honey. My husband is so delighted, that he does not want to extract honey by any method other than Flow frames in the future!

  • 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.

  • I need to take a Minute to thank the Flow Hive team for coming up with such and amazing Honey Super.
    It has been our second year with The Flow Hives and it's just Amazing how the girls don't Evening know you are drawing the honey out. They don't get injured or stress and so much LESS work than removing a super and cutting the wax cappings off each side of the frames and spinning all the frames and let's not forget the clean up. We have harvested the Flow Hive twice this summer and the girls are just working to fill the frames up again.
    Of course you still need to do regular Brood Box inspections, which always tells a bee keeper a whole lot of info.

    Flow Hive Is The WAY TO GO .

    Thanks Again Flow Hive.
