Sustainability is a core value for all of us at Flow. We offer these brood boxes to those who also believe that it's better to make good use of our natural resources and are prepared to tinker a little—waste not, want knot!

Due to the nature of this second-grade timber, it is possible you may encounter some imperfections such as:

  • Small cracks or dents, minor warping, knots in the timber
  • Handle styles may differ on each side of box
  • Finger joints may show some variation. 

Made in the US from durable, sustainably sourced North American Western Red Cedar, these Bee Grade Brood Boxes are available in 8 or 10 frame Langstroth deep sizing. They can be used for brood, or as an additional conventional honey super and are sized to be compatible with 8 or 10 frame Langstroth hives or the Flow Hive Classic 6 or 7

We only have a limited quantity, so get in quickly to forage for a bargain!

Waste Knot, Want Knot

This brood box is crafted from Western Red Cedar, using CNC technology. Created from timber panels not utilized in our premium stock.

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 Brood Box

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.

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

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  • Today is the anniversary of the day I first hived bees in my Flow Hive!

    A year in and I now have 7 colonies. I've learned so much but have a lot more to learn.

    Thank you for inspiring me.

  • Apis mellifera capensis + flow = Success

    I got just over 4 litres/ 6 kg of honey from two frames!

  • I put the flow hive honey super on my hive on July 10th, 9 days ago. Much to my amazement I looked through the side window and saw that the outside comb is about 2/3 filled.
    The flow hive is a brilliant innovation, and makes producing honey incredibly easy for the beekeeper, and easy on the bees.
    A friend who looked on was in awe, and is now considering purchasing his own flow hive!

  • In 2014 I had the pleasure of testing the Flow Frames. The bees quickly accepted them and, in less than two weeks, capped 40 pounds of honey. It was quite exciting to see the first bit of honey appear at the outlet, then make its way down the tube into the jar. Mesmerising.
