This bundle is perfect for beekeepers who are getting started with Flow for the first time and:

  • find 10 frame Langstroth sizing suitable for their local climate, and/or
  • would like to keep new equipment compatible with their existing 10 frame hives

Having an additional Flow Frame in your super also has the added bonus of collecting even more delicious Flow Honey!

This Bundle comes complete with safety gear and an additional veil, and ensures that you and your loved ones will bee prepared as you embark on the experience of beekeeping with Flow.

Why select a Flow Hive Classic 7 Frame over a 6 Frame?

 

If you can’t decide which size is best for you, then consider whether these things are relevant:

    • You want the maximum amount of honey? An extra Flow Frame means you get more sweetness for your buck!
    • You already have traditional Langstroth hives? Consistent sizing (for aesthetics or mixing and swapping will be convenient. 
    • You live in a cooler climate? It can be helpful to have more honey storage space for your bees to keep themselves nourished over winter.

If one or more of these are important to you, then this 7-Frame may be the best option.

1 x Flow Veil

The Flow Veil is a comfortable, lightweight hat with an attached veil.

These veils offer convenient face protection, however, are not suitable for use when getting up close and personal with an open hive or a cranky colony. One size fits most.

Why get a Flow Hive?

Bees are fascinating!

Flow Hive is so much easier for the beekeeper, and so much gentler on the bees.
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.

AUSTRALIAN ARAUCARIA (HOOP PINE)

Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria (Hoop Pine), using precision laser manufacturing.

Araucaria is a premium Australian native cabinet timber, highly regarded for its stability & durability. To ensure it lasts a long time outdoors, two good coats of quality weatherproof sealant such as exterior house paint is a must. You can be as creative with the paint job as you like!

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.

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.

Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent protection 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.

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

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.

Not anymore!

After a decade of tinkering, my dad Stu and I invented the beekeeper’s dream – the Flow Hive.

It makes harvesting honey as simple as turning a tap and watching as up to 3kg of pure fresh honey pours out into your jar from each Flow Frame. And because it’s completely unprocessed, it tastes amazingly good!
