A huge part of having a successful vegetable garden is pollination – we need bees to pollinate one-third of our food crops and 90% of our wild plants. Keep bees using a Flow Hive and discover the amazing benefits to the bees, yourself, and your garden!

You can harvest up to 46 lb of delicious honey when the 7-frame super is full.

“I had no idea bees were going to provide as much food through pollination as they have... I wish I had done this 10 years earlier.”

Roslyn's first honey harvest is incredible

For a first harvest, I was absolutely amazed at how easy it was. The hardest thing was trying not to eat some as it's very good!

Where are Flow Hives made?

Flow Hives are made in Australia using quality timbers from sustainable sources. We work closely with our suppliers who are all Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) certified

Our Flow Frames are an artificial foundation from BPA- and BPS-free food grade plastic, manufactured right here in Australia.

Workers are respected and valued in certified safe work environments and are employed under fair trade conditions.

The Flow Hive is invented by father-son duo Stuart and Cedar Anderson of Northern Rivers, NSW.

Does the Flow Hive work in really hot or really cold temperatures?

Yes! The Flow Hive is successfully in use in all climates wherever beekeeping is possible, from the hot Texan summers to the cold Canadian winters.

Is beekeeping a good family activity?

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 ;)

Make sure you have some extra suits on hand – we have protective wear in all sizes to accommodate all members of the family.

Still have questions? We'd love to hear from you.

How do Flow Frames work?

How do I get bees?

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

There are a number of ways of starting a colony, from buying a package of bees, to receiving a hive split or catching a swarm.

We also have a range of videos and blogs to help you understand the different ways in which you can source bees for your new hive.

How will I learn about beekeeping?

The inventor connects in with our Flow Community every week livestreamed to YouTube or Facebook. You can ask him questions and have them answered from your lounge room!

Join 5,000+ beekeepers at TheBeekeeper.org, an online beekeeping course designed to improve your skills, confidence and beekeeping success.

I have a small yard or rooftop, can I still have a hive?

Yes! Flow Hives are perfect for setting-up just about anywhere.

You will need enough space to access the back of the hive for easy harvesting and your bees will require a clear space at the front of the hive for their flight path.

You'll also need to check-in with local governing bodies to find out if there are any regulations that you need to be aware of.

Here are some of our top tips on where to set up your beehive.

Is there any safety information I need to be aware of?

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.

Check out this Flow sponsored safety pamphlet covering common beekeeping safety risks and first aid responses.
