A family idea that was a decade in the making
Flow Hive is a custom built beehive, featuring patented technology, that offers an easier and more gentle way to harvest honey from bees. Put simply, it uses “taps” that release honey from specially designed Flow Frames, allowing beekeepers to extract the fresh honey without even opening the hive. It’s the result of recognising that harvesting honey doesn’t have to be stressful to the bees or involve heavy lifting and expensive equipment.
As passionate hobbyist beekeepers, Stuart and Cedar Anderson had become frustrated with the age old problem of extracting honey from the hive, and wanted to develop a method that allowed for efficient harvesting without killing too many bees or getting stung. They got to work trying to figure out a better method, and after a decade of trial and error, the father and son duo had invented the beekeeper’s dream: a solution that makes harvesting honey both easier on the bees and easier on the beekeeper. However, it wasn’t always a given that their innovation would see the light of day.
