Taste the difference

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.

22 jars of honey in 11 minutes

Joh from Better Homes & Gardens shares her beekeeping story.

This invention is incredible. I have 22 jars of honey in 11 minutes and all I’ve had to do [to harvest] is turn a key... I can’t believe that something so simple that we can all be doing can be doing so much good in the world. It just gives me so much joy!

How do Flow Frames work?

Watch the following video below to learn how the Flow Frames work.

Are Flow Hives made in Australia?

Flow Hives are made in Australia by dedicated staff with precision and care.

Our Flow Frames are an artificial foundation from BPA- and BPS-free food grade plastic, manufactured right here in Australia.

Workers are respected and valued in certified safe work environments and are employed under fair trade conditions.

The Flow Hive is invented by father-son duo Stuart and Cedar Anderson of Northern Rivers, NSW.

How do I get bees?

Bees rarely find their way into empty beehive boxes, even though they are designed to be a perfect home for them.

There are a number of ways of starting a colony, from buying a package of bees, to receiving a hive split or catching a swarm.

We also have a range of videos and blogs to help you understand the different ways in which you can source bees for your new hive.

I have a small yard or rooftop, can I still have a hive?

Yes! Flow Hives are perfect for setting-up just about anywhere.

You will need enough space to access the back of the hive for easy harvesting and your bees will require a clear space at the front of the hive for their flight path.

You'll also need to check-in with local governing bodies to find out if there are any regulations that you need to be aware of.

Here are some of our top tips on where to set up your beehive.

Is beekeeping a good family activity?

Yes! Getting set up with a Flow Hive is a great interactive family activity as our revolutionary honey harvesting technology removes the need for additional harvesting equipment, making this enjoyable hobby much more accessible.
Harvesting honey together as a family is an incredible experience and enough to entice all members of your family to learn about bees which are completely fascinating! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with extra hands on deck to help out with brood inspections ;)

Make sure you have some extra suits on hand – we have protective wear in all sizes to accommodate all members of the family.

Still have questions? We'd love to hear from you.

Is there any safety information I need to be aware of?

Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby which when approached with knowledge, skill and dedication can be incredibly rewarding.

It is important to understand some basic safety guidelines to ensure that your beekeeping experience is a safe and positive one.

Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
