Meet Kimberly Dominesey, a mum of 8 from Myersville, Maryland, who with the help of her Flow Hive has managed to add homegrown fruit, vegetables and honey to her family’s pantry. Discover what inspired her family to take up beekeeping and how her garden is benefiting.
There are over 19,000 different bee species worldwide, yet sadly their numbers are on the decline. Right now 10% of these essential little pollinators are facing extinction.
Gardeners know how important pollination is – whether you’re into prize-winning blooms, or feeding your family from your vegetable plot, our little garden allies are completely necessary for the health and reproduction of our plants.
Loss of habitat, lack of forage and increased use of pesticides is having an alarming impact on our pollinators. Many areas are experiencing a decrease in the availability of insects, and in extreme cases, trees are being pollinated by hand to make up for the lack of natural pollination.
The prospect of a world without bees is a scary one, considering that approximately 30% off our food crops and 90% of our plants depend upon them.
Have you ever thought of adding a beehive to your yard? It’s good for your garden and great for the earth.
Until now, beekeeping has been a hobby only practised by a dedicated group of people, requiring lots of space, time and additional expensive processing equipment.
The Flow Hive has made beekeeping so much more accessible.
The gentlest method of honey harvesting ever developed, the Flow Hive can be used anywhere – from rooftops and balconies to backyards or acreage, this elegant system eliminates the need for a lot of space and for expensive and cumbersome honey extraction equipment.
To harvest honey, it’s no longer necessary to spend hours engaged in sticky time-consuming work, which requires lots of heavy lifting, resulting in bee stings and lots of dead bees.
A Flow Hive takes all the hard work out of harvesting honey. By simply turning the Flow Key, the Flow Frames are activated and pure, fresh, locally sourced, unfiltered honey runs out of the hive and into your jar.
With a Flow Hive, you’ll be able to experience flavours foraged from blooms in your region to create your very own unique honey blend.
From the zesty delights of a nearby citrus orchard to the herbaceous and floral notes of lavender, honey harvested from a Flow Hive is raw and completely unprocessed, making it superior in flavour to commercially produced honey.
There’s nothing like sharing the seasonal flavours collected from your very own yard with the people you love.
Flow Hives are now in use by over 65,000 people around the world in over 130 countries! This easy honey harvesting technology has inspired thousands of new beekeepers to discover the fascinating world of bees and now they’re reaping the rewards.
Invented by a multi-generational beekeeping family, our award-winning design has been tested in the field for over a decade, so you can be sure your beehive will not only make a beautiful garden feature but that its innovative design will work as promised!
Globally, the Flow Community are helping the plight of bees by becoming custodians to their very own colonies and as a reward, their gardens are benefiting plus they get a sweet reward.
