Interested in Farm to Table?

The growing demand for homegrown produce combined with an awareness on the negative effects of refined sugar and artificial sweeteners is leaving many cooks in a pickle, as they strive to find alternative sweetening methods for their favourite recipes.

Many people are turning to honey as an alternative to sugar, however not all honey is created equal.

Commercially sold honey is often adulterated with sugar syrup, contains harmful pesticides, is heated during extraction which kills all health benefits, and is usually from an unknown source.

Meet Head Chef Todd Knoll from Jordan Winery who draws daily inspiration from his one-acre garden. Todd’s aim is to highlight all the flavors of the Sonoma, California region, so when he wanted to incorporate a sweet touch, he installed three Flow Hives in his restaurant garden 🐝🌱🍯

In any recipe where I find sugar I'll take it out and try a honey, and I'll try the different honeys I have. It becomes another spice component on my rack.

Beekeeping with Joh Griggs

Find out how Aussie Television icon Johanna Griggs got completely hooked on beekeeping with her best friend Chris Bath.

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!

So why does it taste so good?

With Flow’s patented technology you can harvest from your bee hive in small batches directly into your jar.

Without the blending of conventional harvesting, you can experience the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle!) seasonal variations in colour, flavour, and bouquet.

The distinctive flavours in each jar of Flow Hive harvested honey will reflect your specific location and seasonality of the nectar flow in your environment.

A Flow-commissioned study by the University of Queensland found “Flow extraction method yields honey with fresher, cleaner flavors then conventionally extracted honey”.

How do Flow Frames Work?

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 there any safety information I need to be aware of?

Beekeeping is a labor of love. As with all animal husbandry, it’s a pastime that requires knowledge, skill and dedication and which carries with it inherent risks.

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.

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