The Flow Hive Hybrid gives you the best of both worlds—fresh, natural honeycomb and pure, unfiltered honey on tap straight from the hive.

  • Suitable for beginner or experienced beekeepers who want to experience the ease of harvesting with Flow with our entry level hive

  • Perfect if you want to collect honeycomb in addition to delicious Flow Honey

Combining Flow technology with traditional wooden frames in your Flow Super allows you the flexibility to harvest honey on tap from your Flow Frames and delicious honeycomb from your wooden frames.

How does it work?

The Flow Super is specially modified to house three Flow Frames centrally, which are flanked by two timber foundationless frames on either side so the bees can draw their own fresh honeycomb.

This has the added benefit of offering you the ability to move wooden frames between the super and brood box which can be useful for hive management.

The side observation window allows you to watch your bees building their honeycomb, and the rear harvesting door (smaller than on a Classic Super), allows you to observe and harvest your Flow Frames.

What’s included in a Flow Hive Hybrid kit:

  • Flow Hybrid Super Araucaria (fits 3 Flow Frames & 4 timber frames)
  • 3 Flow Frames
  • 3 Flow Tubes
  • 1 Flow Key
  • Base with screened mesh

  • Inner cover

Fresh honeycomb!

The Flow Hive Hybrid is a wonderful addition to any apiary, providing the ability to collect delicious honeycomb. Organically built by nature’s little engineers and constructed in natural-and-perfect hexagon shapes, honeycomb is bound to entice and inspire those who you choose to share it with.

 

Perfect for families & children who may never have experienced the delight of fresh, warm honeycomb from bees, which—in addition to being delicious—makes a great gift for friends and neighbours.

Honeycomb is also a firm favourite with gourmet food-lovers, it can be served on cheese platters, as a lush breakfast or after-dinner spread, or enjoyed on its own for its chewy sweet simplicity.

 

Precision manufacturing & premium timber

The patented Flow Frame technology allows you to tap honey directly from your hive. Made in Australia from durable, highest quality, food-grade, BPA and BPS-free plastic - Flow Frames have taken the beekeeping world by storm.

Crafted from sustainably harvested Australian Araucaria - also known as Hoop Pine, using precision laser manufacturing and paired with a full set of Flow Frames, this is one sweet hive!

Araucaria is a premium Australian native cabinet timber, highly regarded for its stability & durability. To ensure it lasts a long time outdoors, two good coats of quality weatherproof sealant such as exterior house paint or varnish is a must. You can be as creative with the paint job as you like!

Timber included in this product is made from naturally grown resources - each hive will be slightly different in character. Please see our FAQ for more information on our natural timber characteristics.

Safety, care & maintaining your Flow Hive

Apply a coat or two of timber sealant to bring out the lustre of this beautiful timber, and help it last even longer.

Beekeeping is a labour of love. As with all animal husbandry, it’s a pastime which requires knowledge, skill and dedication and which carries with it inherent risks. Sooner or later, all beekeepers get stung. Some people have severe allergies to bee stings, so please be aware of the potential hazards when considering whether beekeeping is right for you.

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

The Invention

Often referred to as the “Beekeeper’s Dream”, Flow was created out of a desire to make harvesting honey easier for the beekeeper and to lessen its impact on the bees.

“I really didn’t like squashing bees or disturbing the hive when harvesting, so I thought ‘there has to be a better way”. (Cedar Anderson).

For those that don’t know, harvesting honey used to be pretty labour intensive. After a decade of tinkering, our Patented Flow Frame technology is the most significant advancement in beekeeping since 1852. It is now possible to simply turn the Flow Key and watch as pure, untouched, unprocessed fresh honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar.
