Interested in Farm to Table?

The growing demand for homegrown veggies combined with an awareness on the negative effects of refined sugar and artificial sweeteners is leaving many families 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, and with the Flow Hive you can harvest up to 18kgs of delicious honey when the 6-frame super is full.

Create your own ingredients

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.

Home grown veggies with Joh Griggs

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

I wanted to produce all of our vegetables that we could live off and I knew a huge part of having a successful veggie garden was not only compost and soil but actually pollination.

Maximise your harvest this season

Meet Kimberly Dominesey, who with the help of her Flow Hive has managed to add homegrown fruit, vegetables and honey to her family’s pantry 🐝🌱🍯

Our zucchini are doing much better this year with the bees. Last year we had four plants and got one zucchini. This year we had six plants, and eight zucchini at the very beginning of the season! The bees seem to be doing a great job there!

Become a part of your environment

Meet Jim, who has become much more aware of his environment since becoming a beekeeper.

I love the flow hive concept because it’s so simple. You don’t need all the equipment. With just a couple of hives you can make some really nice honey and do something for the environment.

So why are the bees disappearing?

Loss of habitat, lack of forage and increased use of pesticides is having an alarming impact on our pollinators.

The prospect of a world without bees is a scary one, considering that approximately 30% off our food crops and 90% of our plants depend upon them.

The good news is that there is plenty we can do!

Have you ever thought of adding a beehive to your yard? It’s good for your garden and great for the earth.

“I had no idea bees were going to provide as much food through pollination as they have... I wish I had done this 10 years earlier.”
– Joh Griggs, Better Homes & Gardens

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.

Plus a knowledgeable support team on hand to answer your questions.

Learning from experienced people in your local area is invaluable so it's also helpful to connect with a local beekeeping club, beekeeping course or mentor for support.

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.

Perfect for beginners

A Flow Hive is great for beginners as our technology makes harvesting so easy, PLUS all hive purchases come with our Bee Supported package, including dedicated email, chat, phone support, and access to our Flow Community Forums that are a hive of activity and information.
