FLOW HIVES IN THE U.K.
Although developed in subtropical Australia, Flow Hives are used successfully in colder climates around the world, as the brood nest is the same as in a traditional hive. The bees work to keep the brood at a consistent temperature of around 34-36°C.
As with any type of honey extraction, it’s preferable to take steps to avoid crystallisation inside the hive - this particularly applies to honey produced from ivy and rapeseed nectar. However, the Flow system offers certain advantages for honeys that are prone to crystallisation.
Included with the purchase of any Flow Hive is our Bee Supported package – phone support, Live Q&A streams weekly, prioritised email and live chat. In addition, our online course contains all the beekeeping knowledge you need to make you a confident, knowledgeable beekeeper.
With Flow’s patented technology you can harvest honey from individual frames directly into your jar – no blending or processing required. Enjoy pure, unadulterated honey that captures the unique seasonal variations in colour and flavour, from your very own backyard.
The Flow Hive 2+ base is specially designed for pest management, ventilation control and functionality. Including spirit levels for gaining the optimal hive set-up, a multifunctional tray for hive observations and applying pest treatments, and ventilation controls to suit every climate.
Highly requested by the Flow community, the Flow Entrance Reducer is handy for protecting against predators and robbing, reducing drafts in cold climates and can be used to seal the hive entrance for short periods when relocating your hive.
An elegant solution to keeping these tiny intruders out of your hive. Your Flow Hive 2+ comes with an adjustable Flow Ant Guard™ set, made in Australia from 100% recycled polypropylene. Sustainably produced, the guards provide a space for creating a liquid ant barrier on the legs of your Hive Stand.
Created from highly durable, sustainably-sourced, A-grade western red cedar, the Flow Hive 2+ is laser-cut and built with precision by us in Australia

Plastic has been used in beehives as part of foundation for brood frames for many years. Our Flow Hives only feature the highest quality, foodgrade, BPA and BPS Free plastic in the Flow Super where the honey is stored. The bees complete the Flow Frame matrix and coat it with wax before adding their nectar to turn into honey. We supply and recommend foundationless brood frames to keep the brood nest as natural as possible for the bees.
Our premium Flow Hive 2+ includes extra features to make taking care of your bees even easier, and is manufactured using western red cedar (Thuja Plicata). Sustainably sourced in North America, cedar is a beautiful timber with a remarkably fine and stable grain structure.
Cedar is often used as a hive timber in the USA, UK and other regions, because of its durability and insulative properties.
The wood includes beautiful, rich colour variation ranging from yellowish-white colour to a pale brown through to a richer dark brown. As this product is made from naturally grown resources – each hive will be slightly different in character. You can maintain a natural timber finish by oiling or staining to accentuate its natural colour variations.
Yes! Getting set up with a Flow Hive is a great interactive family activity as our revolutionary honey harvesting technology removes the need for additional harvesting equipment, making this enjoyable hobby much more accessible. Harvesting honey together as a family is an incredible experience and enough to entice all members of your family to learn about bees which are completely fascinating! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself with extra hands on deck to help out with brood inspections ;)
Yes! The Flow Hive is successfully in use in all climates wherever beekeeping is possible, from the hot Australian summers to the cold Alaskan winters.
Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby which when approached with knowledge, skill and dedication can be incredibly rewarding.
It is important to understand some basic safety guidelines to ensure that your beekeeping experience is a safe and positive one.
Beekeeping suits and other personal protective equipment can offer excellent prevention against bee stings but are not 100 percent effective. It’s important new beekeepers exercise caution when tending to their hives and are comfortable with the fact that sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung.
