Flow Super Hybrid Cedar

A Flow Super Hybrid is perfect for beekeepers with an existing hive who want to experience the ease of harvesting with Flow and are also lovers of honeycomb.

This package contains a combination of 3 or 4 Flow Frames to be used in conjunction with 4 supplied traditional foundationless timber frames and a specially modified Flow Super Hybrid box made from sustainably sourced Western Red Cedar.

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 hive and into your jar.

Our Flow Super Hybrid is available in two sizing options:

  • 3 x Flow Frames compatible with Langstroth 8 brood frame width, or a Flow Hive Classic 6 frame
  • 4 x Flow Frames compatible with Langstroth 10 brood frame width, or a Flow Hive Classic 7 frame

Combining Flow technology with traditional wooden frames in your Flow Super allows you the flexibility to harvest honey on tap from your Flow Frames and delicious fresh honeycomb from your wooden frames. This package has the additional benefit of offering beekeepers the option to move wooden frames between the super and brood box, which can be useful for hive management.

Honeycomb is a great gift for friends & family, organically built by nature’s little engineers and constructed in natural-and-perfect hexagon shapes, it is bound to entice and inspire those who you choose to share it with.

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 hive and into your jar.

Precision Manufacturing & Premium Timber

The patented Flow Frame technology allows you to tap honey directly from your 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 set of 3 or 4 Flow Frames, this super is the perfect way to convert your hive to the Flow method of harvesting, allowing you to harvest both pure unfiltered liquid honey and raw natural honeycomb.

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 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?

When the super is full you can harvest up to 12 kgs (26.5 lb) of Flow honey from the 4 frame model, or 9 kgs (20 lb) of Flow honey from the 3 frame model. This is in addition to the honey in the comb that you'll get from your Flow Hybrid Super. 

Watch as fresh, pure unfiltered honey Flows from the back of the 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 Super Hybrid

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.
