Our revolutionary system lets you harvest your honey one frame at a time. This way you can appreciate the unique flavours and subtle aromas of your local area. Taste the seasonal differences in nature's blooming bounty!
Honey can come from a wonderful array of different flowers in bloom, or be single-origin. Most backyard honey will be a mix of different nectar sources, as the bees will forage on a wide variety of flowering plants, and thus be "multi-floral" honey.
The distinctive flavours in each jar of Flow Hive harvested honey will reflect the specific location and seasonality of the nectar flow in your environment. Bees tend to fill cells in succession, one frame at a time. Each Flow Frame can look, smell and taste unique as it will reflect the forage available at the time the bees fill it.
Flow’s patented technology allows each single-source honey to be tapped individually, so you can experience the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle!) seasonal variations in colour, flavour, and bouquet.
Beekeeping used to require hours engaged in sticky time-consuming work, lots of heavy lifting, often 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.
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.
Flow harvested honey is ready to eat straight from the hive without the blending, heating, and oxidisation associated with conventional harvesting methods. This allows the distinctive notes to shine through and enables you to get a variety of flavours from a single hive. Check out how impressed Masterchef’s Gary Mehigan was when he visited our office to experience a smorgasbord of sweetness from a Flow Hive harvest.
But don't just take our word for it, science says so too. A Flow-commissioned study by the University of Queensland found that Flow Hive harvested honey tasted "fresher" and more "floral" than conventionally harvested honey.
Did you know that you can trace the origin of your honey by analysing the pollen attached to your bees' hairy body?
Why not host a honey-tasting evening with your friends? Tasting honey can be as fine an art as wine tasting, and your guests can drive home afterward! It's a great way to enjoy and show off the unique aromas, tastes and colours of your very own Flow Hive harvested honey.
