Bee Fact: Even though bees don’t have nostrils, lungs or gills, they breathe through 10 pairs of valves on their body. These valves, called spiracles, are located on the sides of their body; three pairs on the thorax, six on the abdomen and one pair hidden within the sting chamber. Though it may appear that the bee is panting, this motion is actually the bee drawing in air through it’s spiracles which is then vacuumed into a complex structure of tracheae and air sacs.
Bees can suffocate from the use of common pesticides in gardens as it coats a bee’s body and blocks off their vents, making them unable to draw oxygen.
Care for the bees and make clean, green choices this holiday season, and remember to breathe.

Why get a Flow Hive?
Bees are fascinating!
Watch through the side and rear window and see all the girls making honey!
There are just so many intriguing things that bees do - the learning never ends.
Delicious honey, directly into your jars
Easily harvest pure, unheated, unprocessed, untouched, raw delicious honey directly from the hive! No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment, and much more gentle on the bees than conventional harvesting.
With Flow, you can fill just one small jar from part of a frame and bring it straight to the kitchen for breakfast, or harvest one or more Flow Frames and share it with your friends!
Isolate all the different flavours of the seasons
Because you can harvest single frames directly into your honey jar, you get to taste all the different flavours of the seasons without the blending, heating and oxidisation associated with conventional harvesting methods.
Bees tend to fill frames one at a time, so each Flow Frame will reflect the flowers that were blooming when it was filled, allowing distinctive variations in colour and flavour to shine through.
Share the experience with your friends
With Flow, harvesting honey is now something you can easily do with friends and family.
To share the experience and gift honey to your friends is one of the great things about keeping bees.
Pollination. Education. Wonder!
Bees play a huge role in pollinating the food we eat.
Keeping bees brings awareness to the cycle of life we all depend on.
How It Works
Our invention - the biggest innovation in beekeeping for 150 years - was originally launched in 2015 through a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign.
“This has all come about because of our love for the bees and an acknowledgement of how important they are, not only to the food we eat, but to all life on Earth.”
- Stuart Anderson
“If we look after the bees, they’ll look after us. And the honey really is an amazing bonus.”
- Cedar Anderson
It’s hard to think of a more rewarding hobby than beekeeping.
However, extracting honey from a conventional hive used to be a real labor of love.
It was hot, sticky, heavy work, involving special equipment and lots of squashed bees.
After a decade of tinkering, my dad Stu and I invented the beekeeper’s dream – the Flow Hive.
It’s so much easier for the beekeeper and so much gentler on the bees - making harvesting honey as simple as turning a tap and watching as up to 6.5lb of pure fresh honey pours out into your jar from each Flow Frame.
And because it’s completely unprocessed, the honey tastes amazingly good!
