Honey tells the story of its local landscape like nothing else – from its colour to its flavour, it allows us to experience our environment in a brand-new way.
What’s more, our revolutionary Flow technology lets you harvest in small batches directly to your jar, without the blending of conventional harvesting. The result? Each jar has its own unique taste profile, depending on which flowers the bees have foraged from. You’ll be amazed at the rich variety of colours, flavours and aromas a single hive can produce!
Introduce a beehive to your garden and experience the pollination power of up to 5 million flowers a day!
Bees and other pollinators are a vital ingredient to ensure your plants bear fruit. They get busy, and (before too long) your abundant vege garden is the talk of the street.
What’s more, honey bees produce lots of delicious honey (up to 21 kg per Flow Hive, in fact!)
Step 2: Learn as much as you can
One of the most important parts of becoming a beekeeper is learning as much as you can and we have you covered!
We have a swarm of resources available to help you every step of the way, including a weekly Q&A with the inventor, email, chat, and phone access to our support team.
To fast-track your learning easily and enjoyably, we created an online beginner beekeeping course – TheBeekeeper.org. Learn in your own time with high-quality videos explaining what you need to know in order to feel confident looking after your bees.
When selecting your garden blooms, make sure to include some local native plants in a variety of different colours.
Bees, like humans, enjoy diversity. Include flowers of different sizes and shapes and plant in clumps to make foraging a breeze.
Find plants that bloom at different times of the year. Support a range of different pollinators throughout the different seasons. Trees and shrubs produce much higher quantities of pollen and nectar, however, smaller plants produce forage more regularly – it’s great to have a selection of both.
Building a new home for your bees is an exciting part of your beekeeping journey. It’s best to take your time and ensure that you get your assembly right. Check out our assembly videos here.
It’s important to treat the timber on your hive to give it the best weather protection possible for your climate, especially the roof – it’s the first line of defence against the weather. Read more
The good news is, you can keep a beehive almost anywhere! Especially a Flow Hive, as there is no need for additional processing equipment or for lugging heavy frames full of honey for harvesting. From rooftops to balconies to backyards, it’s now possible to harvest honey directly from your hive.
An important part of getting your new hive up and running is ensuring that it’s registered. This step is a crucial part of becoming a beekeeper and helps protect our biosecurity.
Part of beekeeping is ensuring you’re informed about things that may impact not only your bees but the wider beekeeping community, such as biosecurity. The good news is there are a number of simple steps you can take to support the health of your bees when you’re getting started.
From staying abreast of any industry news, to registering your hive, to knowing what to look for in terms of pests and diseases, understanding these practices now will set you up for success moving forward!
