Harvest honey on tap directly from your hive! 

Sustainability is a core value for all of us at Flow. We are passionate about our ecological footprint and minimise waste by utilising as much timber as possible during manufacturing. These character Flow Hives are made from STK (sound-tight-knot) western red cedar, sourced from smaller plantation trees and shows a variety of characteristics giving each its own unique personality.

These character hives may include unique qualities in the timber such as feature knots, grain markings, small dents and some rougher surfaces.

At this incredible price, these hives are perfect for beginners or experienced beekeepers who are happy with cosmetic imperfections in their timber components in order to experience the ease of harvesting with Flow and making better use of our natural resources.

The patented Flow Frame technology is the most significant advancement in beekeeping since 1852. Made in Brisbane, Australia, from durable, BPA- and BPS-free plastic, Flow Frames have taken the beekeeping world by storm.

Waste not, want knot

The timber components of this hive are precision laser-cut and crafted from sustainably sourced Western Red Cedar, created from timber panels not utilized in our premium stock. 

Though the timber components for this hive are classified as sound tight knot (bee grade), your hive will be fully functional and the gabled roof and Flow Frames included are still first grade. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics

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.

Western Red Cedar is a highly durable and naturally weatherproof timber – it’s longevity and lustre can be increased by applying a coat or two of timber sealant.

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.

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