By popular request, we have a limited number of past season's Flow Hybrid Supers in Western Red Cedar, available at a seriously reduced price—compatible with founding supporter hives!

Sustainability is a core value for all of us at Flow, so for a limited time, we are offering these Flow Super Hybrids for just the price of the Flow Frames—that's a saving of up to $130!

As these Hybrids are from aged stock (including some founding supporter supers), it is possible you may encounter some timber imperfections such as:

  • Small cracks or dents, minor warping, knots in the timber.
  • Moisture changes that may mean finger joints need shaving back.

A Flow Super Hybrid is perfect for beekeepers with an existing hive who want to experience the ease of harvesting with Flow and are also lovers of honeycomb.

Invented by father and son team, Stu and Cedar Anderson, 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.

Our Flow Super Hybrid is available in two sizing options:

  • 3 x Flow Frames compatible with Langstroth 8 brood frame width, or a Flow Hive Classic 6 frame
  • 4 x Flow Frames compatible with Langstroth 10 brood frame width, or a Flow Hive Classic 7 frame

There are only a limited quantity so get in quick to forage for a bargain!

The Flow Super Hybrid can also be added as a second super on top of your existing Flow Hive, increasing your amount of honey-on-tap harvesting whilst also providing fresh honeycomb.

Includes:

  • Flow Super Hybrid box (western red cedar)
  • 3 or 4 x Flow Frames
  • 3 or 4 x Flow Tubes
  • 1 x Flow Key

This is not a complete hive and is designed to be added to an existing hive*.

Shipped flat-packed. Does not include bees.

The Flow Super Hybrid option is designed to be filled with a combination of our patented Flow Frames (supplied) and 4 traditional timber frames (not supplied), giving you honeycomb and easy to harvest honey. Please contact our customer service team if you require timber brood frames as well. 

Sizing Compatibility:

The Flow Hybrid Super in western red cedar, is compatible with our Flow Hive Classic Cedar 6 (US version), founding supporter hive and Flow Hive Classic Araucaria 6. 

If you have a Flow Hive Classic Cedar (AU version), Flow Hive Classic character grade or Flow Hive 2, please contact us for compatibility details before purchasing. 

FAQs on Flow Hybrid

    Waste Not, Want Knot

    The timber components for this hive are classified as aged stock (scratch & dent), however, the Flow Frames included are still first grade.

    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.

    The timber components of this hive are crafted from Western Red Cedar, using CNC technology, created from timber panels not utilized in our premium stock. Paired with a set of 3 or 4 Flow Frames, this super is the perfect way to convert your hive to the Flow method of harvesting, allowing you to harvest both pure unfiltered liquid honey and raw natural honeycomb.

    We decided to use Western red cedar (Thuja plicata) as it is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure, and is sustainably sourced in North America.

    Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each hive will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.

    *If you have an existing beehive, you can order a Flow Super Hybrid to convert a Langstroth hive to the Flow system of beekeeping.

    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.
