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.
Experience the delight of fresh honeycomb! The Flow Super Hybrid is specially designed to accommodate both our patented Flow Frames and four conventional honey frames to allow you to harvest both fresh honeycomb and Flow harvested honey.
With Flow’s patented technology you can harvest from individual frames directly from the hive into your jar. Without the blending of conventional harvesting, you can experience the seasonal variations in colour, flavour, and bouquet.
Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria, a native cabinet timber highly regarded for its stability & durability. Apply two coats of exterior house paint to ensure a lifetime outdoors. Get creative!

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.
Bees rarely find their way into empty beehive boxes, even though they are designed to be a perfect home for them.

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.
