PREORDER – shipping late November.

Need a brood box now? Check out our in-stock cedar Flow HIve 2 brood boxes here.

These Flow Hive 2 Paulownia brood boxes are available to match the new Paulownia Flow Hive 2.

Manufactured in the same style as those included with our Flow Hive 2 Paulownia, these 8 frame Langstroth deep brood boxes can be used for brood, or as an additional conventional honey super.

Made in Australia from durable, sustainably sourced, Paulownia timber, these brood boxes are the ideal addition to our Flow Hive 2 Paulownia kit.

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 less of them are required to fill the super in a hive in comparison to brood frames in the brood box.

  • For an 8 frame brood box, 6 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. Compatible with a Flow Hive 2 6 frame or 8 frame Langstroth hive.
  • For a 10 frame brood box, 7 Flow Frames are used to completely fill the super. Compatible with a Flow Hive 2 7 frame or 10 frame Langstroth hive. 

 

Pre-order your matching Flow Hive 2 Paulownia brood box today – but hurry, only a limited quantity available.

Note: There is a small sizing variance between these brood boxes and those included with our classic Flow Hives. To check for compatibility please find more information here.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  1. Flow Hive 2 Paulownia Brood Box with timber frames

  2. 8 or 10 timber frames with comb guides

  3. Hardware for Brood Box and Frames

• Does not include bees.

• We ship our Flow Hive 2 Paulownia Brood Box flat packed and unsealed, leaving you with the satisfying experience of assembling yourself and bee-ing creative by painting or sealing it to suit your personal tastes. 

• Does not include assembly instructions. Please find these here

NOTE: There a slight dimensional difference between our timber types, however, it is possible to stack this product with either our Paulownia, Western Red Cedar or Araucaria products. Please read this FAQ for further information. 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.

Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

Australian designed and manufactured, the Flow Hive 2 Paulownia Brood Box is part of our in-house manufacturing, using precision laser cutting.

This allows us to focus on quality control and ensure the highest levels of sustainability throughout the process, and also gives us the ability to innovate more quickly.

Crafted from sustainably grown, super lightweight, and durable, FSC Paulownia wood, using precision laser manufacturing.

Paulownia often gets compared to the lightweight yet strong properties of cedar. It’s a great timber source, as it grows to harvest in as little as 5 years, making it an icon for sustainability.

Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources – each hive 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 protect the 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.

Check out this Flow-sponsored safety pamphlet covering common beekeeping safety risks and first aid responses.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • 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.

  • Mind-blowing! It's not very often something is so revolutionary as to blow my mind. Saving 20 per cent of harvest labor is not trivial; 40 per cent is amazing; 60 per cent is revolutionary. But 95 per cent – that’s mind-boggling!

  • We've taken 33 pounds of honey in two harvests in the first three weeks of the season from just four Flow frames here in Northern California.

    It's been a wet year, so the flora is rich. It takes bees a long time to engage virgin Flow frames. But once they do, they're bringing it in!

    Our Northern California honey is light, golden, and slightly citrusy. They're getting it from blackberries, lavender, and other local plants. We're expecting more than 180 pounds our three Flow Light hives this year.

  • 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!
