Beekeeping with a Flow Hive allows you more time to tend to your bees, with less time monopolised by harvesting honey. However, keeping two Flow Hives humming simultaneously provides added experiential learning. Our Apiary starter bundle provides so many more benefits than just harvesting twice as much honey- though this is a great bonus!
With two hives you’ll get to learn more about your bees by getting to know their unique temperaments and comparing the outcomes of the two colonies throughout each season. Many beekeepers like to have at least two hives for management purposes, like moving a brood frame in the case of a queenless hive.
The apiary starter bundle includes two Flow Hives along with protective beekeeping equipment and an extra veil. Order yours today!

A quality smoker is an excellent addition to every beekeeper’s kit. Featuring the Flow logo on its bellows, with this quality stainless steel smoker you’ll be able to calm your colony in style. Perfect for beginners with small apiaries, it features a hook at the back, a ventilated insert for better airflow, and a wire guard to protect you against burns.
This super comfy unbleached organic cotton bee suit will assist you to minimise stings during inspections and maintenance. It also includes vented goatskin beekeeping gloves and a standard J-hive tool for getting into your boxes and lifting frames.
The Flow Veil is a comfortable and lightweight hat with a veil attached. They are handy as a precaution for protecting your head and face when doing minor chores around your hives, or giving to a friend to wear on an apiary tour. Lots of beeks love the mix of convenience and facial protection. However BEEWARE - these veils are not suitable for use when getting up close and personal with an open hive or a cranky colony. One size fits most.
Beekeeping is such a fascinating pastime enjoyed by people from all walks of life, the world over. If you've never kept bees before we suggest you check out this article for an overview of what to expect. Also keep in mind that while beekeeper suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent protection against bee stings, they are not 100% effective. It’s important beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards, especially to children, when considering whether children should be allowed near bee hives.
