Integrated adjustable hive stand – optional extra

The Flow Hive 2 is manufactured with a 3º slope towards the honey outlets for optimal honey harvesting, created by two footblocks attached to the front of the base.

As an optional extra, we have created this handy integrated adjustable hive stand for those who don’t have a hive stand, to enable the hive to be freestanding at your perfect hive location.

This special edition allows you to control the level of your hive even on uneven surfaces.

Simply wind each individual leg to the required height, using the handy inbuilt spirit levels located at the side and rear of the base as a guide. The spirit levels are custom made to be aligned when the correct slope has been achieved.

Priced at $109, for a limited time, you can add this upgrade accessory to your Flow Hive for just $65—save $44!

*This accessory is only compatible with Flow Hive 2 and cannot be added to the Flow Hive Classic

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.

    The Flow Hive 2 is our first hive to be manufactured in-house, 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 premium Western Red Cedar, using precision manufacturing and paired with a full set of 6 Flow Frames, this is one sweet hive! 

    We are using 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.

    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?

    Harvest up to 18 kgs (40 lb) of honey when the super is full. 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 and maintaining your flow hive

    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.
