Flow Frames have taken the beekeeping world by storm. We have worked hard to ensure that our Flow Frames are manufactured from the very best food grade materials. The clear viewing ends of the frames, as well as the honey tube and caps, are made from a virgin food grade copolyester. The manufacturers have assured us that it’s not only BPA-free, but it is not manufactured with bisphenol-S or any other bisphenol compounds. The manufacturers also advise that third-party labs have tested this material and the results have demonstrated that it is free of estrogenic and androgenic activity. The centre frame parts are made from a virgin food grade polypropylene which is also free from any bisphenol compounds and is widely accepted as one of the safest plastics for food contact. Plastics have been used for many years in beehives for both brood and honey combs and have not been found to have a negative impact on bee colonies. Why get a Flow Hive? Flow Hive is so much easier for the beekeeper, and so much gentler on the bees. Watch through the side and rear window and see all the girls making honey! There are just so many intriguing things that bees do – the learning never ends. Delicious honey, directly into your jars. Easily harvest pure, unheated, unprocessed, untouched, raw delicious honey directly from the hive! No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment, and much more gentle on the bees than conventional harvesting. With Flow, you can fill just one small jar from part of a frame and bring it straight to the kitchen for breakfast, or harvest one or more Flow Frames and share it with your friends! Isolate all the different flavours of the seasons. Because you can harvest single frames directly into your honey jar, you get to taste all the different flavours of the seasons without the blending, heating and oxidisation associated with conventional harvesting methods. Bees tend to fill frames one at a time, so each Flow Frame will reflect the flowers that were blooming when it was filled, allowing distinctive variations in colour and flavour to shine through. Share the experience with your friends. With Flow, harvesting honey is now something you can easily do with friends and family. To share the experience and gift honey to your friends is one of the great things about keeping bees. Bees play a huge role in pollinating the food we eat. Keeping bees brings awareness to the cycle of life we all depend on. Our invention the biggest innovation in beekeeping for 150 years was originally launched in 2015 through a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign. This has all come about because of our love for the bees and an acknowledgement of how important they are, not only to the food we eat, but to all life on Earth. If we look after the bees, theyll look after us. And the honey really is an amazing bonus. Its hard to think of a more rewarding hobby than beekeeping. However, extracting honey from a conventional hive used to be a real labor of love.. It was hot, sticky, heavy work, involving special equipment and lots of squashed bees. After a decade of tinkering, my dad Stu and I invented the beekeepers dream the Flow Hive. It makes harvesting honey as simple as turning a tap and watching as up to 3kg of pure fresh honey pours out into your jar from each Flow Frame. And because its completely unprocessed, it tastes amazingly good! How much honey can I harvest? (Timelapse image shows 18kg honey harvest from 6-frame Western Red Cedar Flow Hive Classic). Harvest up to 18 kgs (40 lb) of honey. When the 6-frame super is full. Watch as fresh, pure unfiltered honey flows from the back of the hive directly into your own jars. No filtering, no mess. Each Flow Frame holds approximately 3 kg (6.5 lb) of unprocessed honey, this can increase if the bees really build each frame out. Bee prepared with extra jars in case your first one overflows!
