TIMBER - AUSTRALIAN ARAUCARIA (HOOP PINE)

Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria (Hoop Pine), using precision laser manufacturing.

Araucaria is a premium Australian native cabinet timber, highly regarded for its stability & durability. To ensure it lasts a long time outdoors, two good coats of quality weatherproof sealant such as exterior house paint is a must. You can be as creative with the paint job as you like!

Read more about sealing your product here.

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.

Why get a Flow Hive?

Bees are fascinating!

bee_pupleflower

Flow Hive is so much easier for the beekeeper, and so much gentler on the bees. Watch through the side and rear window and see all the girls making honey! There are just so many intriguing things that bees do - the learning never ends.

Delicious honey, directly into your jars

flow-hive-harvest

Easily harvest pure, unheated, unprocessed, untouched, raw delicious honey directly from the hive! No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment, and much more gentle on the bees than conventional harvesting. With Flow, you can fill just one small jar from part of a frame and bring it straight to the kitchen for breakfast, or harvest one or more Flow Frames and share it with your friends!

Isolate all the different flavours of the seasons

flow_hive_roof_harvest

Because you can harvest single frames directly into your honey jar, you get to taste all the different flavours of the seasons without the blending, heating and oxidisation associated with conventional harvesting methods. Bees tend to fill frames one at a time, so each Flow Frame will reflect the flowers that were blooming when it was filled, allowing distinctive variations in colour and flavour to shine through.

Share the experience with your friends

honeyshare

With Flow, harvesting honey is now something you can easily do with friends and family. To share the experience and gift honey to your friends is one of the great things about keeping bees.

Pollination. Education. Wonder!

kids_flowhive

Bees play a huge role in pollinating the food we eat. Keeping bees brings awareness to the cycle of life we all depend on.

How it works

Our invention – the biggest innovation in beekeeping for 150 years – was originally launched in 2015 through a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign.

“This has all come about because of our love for the bees and an acknowledgement of how important they are, not only to the food we eat, but to all life on Earth.”
- Stuart Anderson

“If we look after the bees, they’ll look after us. And the honey really is an amazing bonus.”
- Cedar Anderson


It’s hard to think of a more rewarding hobby than beekeeping.
However, extracting honey from a conventional hive used to be a real labor of love...

It was hot, sticky, heavy work, involving special equipment and lots of squashed bees.

Not anymore!

After a decade of tinkering, my dad Stu and I invented the beekeeper’s dream – the Flow Hive.

It makes harvesting honey as simple as turning a tap and watching as up to 3kg of pure fresh honey pours out into your jar from each Flow Frame. And because it’s completely unprocessed, it tastes amazingly good!

How Flow Frame works

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.

What bee suit size should I pick?

Bee suits are designed to be worn slightly baggy over your normal clothing, so it’s best to choose a slightly larger size than you would normally wear.

Be sure to give yourself plenty of room to move around with additional length for movement – ankles and wrists need to remain covered when you’re crouching, bending or stretching.

You do not want the suit to be tight fitting – it’s this loose fitting material that offers sting prevention.

If in doubt or between sizes, go up to the next size:
