Fresh honeycomb!

Kids with honeycomb

Honeycomb is enticing, children are fascinated by this sweet, sticky delicacy– also a firm favourite with gourmet food-lovers, honeycomb can be served on cheese platters, as a lush breakfast or after-dinner spread, or enjoyed on its own for its chewy sweet simplicity.

Precision manufacturing & premium timber

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.

Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria also known as Hoop Pine, using precision laser manufacturing, and paired with a set of 3 Flow Frames and 4 traditional timber frames for honeycomb collection, this is one sweet hive!

Araucaria is a premium Australian native cabinet timber, highly regarded for its stability & durability.

To protect your hive against outdoor weather conditions, two good coats of quality weatherproof sealant such as exterior house paint or varnish is recommended.  
You can be as creative with the paint job as you like! (See photos further down for some inspiration.)

Safety, care and maintaining of your Flow Hive

Apply a coat or two of timber sealant to protect the timber and help it last longer.

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. Sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards when considering whether beekeeping is right for you. Check out this Flow sponsored safety pamphlet covering common beekeeping safety risks and first aid responses.

The invention

Often referred to as the “Beekeeper’s Dream”, Flow was created out of a desire to make harvesting honey easier for the beekeeper and to lessen its impact on the bees. “I really didn’t like squashing bees or disturbing the hive when harvesting, so I thought ‘there has to be a better way”. (Cedar Anderson).

For those that don’t know, harvesting honey used to be pretty labour intensive. After a decade of tinkering, our Patented Flow Frame technology is the most significant advancement in beekeeping since 1852. It is now possible to simply turn the Flow Key and watch as pure, untouched, unprocessed fresh honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar.
