See the Flow, Taste the Honey

Have you heard of the Flow Hive? You may have seen one the team members of the Botanical Bazaar post a pic or two on Facebook Botanical Bazaar showing us extracting honey from our own Flow Hive. Check it out >

The Flow system is a whole new way of extracting honey from Langstroth-style European honeybee hives.

The brood box stays the same and when it comes to taking care of bees, but you still need to know how to look after your bees. We recommend attending a Bee Course Gold Coast in your local area or find a mentor to supply guidance on how to look after these incredible creatures. There is much to learn, but when you do the rewards as amazing.

Excittingly, the world-first Flow Frames have revolutionised the honey-extraction process. They’ve built an artificial foundation from BPA- and BPS-free food grade plastic, manufactured right here in Australia, on which the bees build their comb.

Plastic foundation in beehives is nothing new, but in a Flow Frame, the cells are almost complete. The bees fill the honey cells and cap them off.

When you insert the Key and split the honey cells, gravity does the rest of the work, and the honey simply flows into the trough, through the tube and into your jar. You’ll know when the honey is ready thanks to the Frames’ unique clear end-frame view and side observation window which let you see inside without taking off the lid and bothering the bees.

They Flow Inventors have designed the frame so no bees get harmed when the mechanism is activated and the extraction occurs, with little gaps they can safely hang out in while the honey flows out. In fact, when taking the honey from the hive, they hardly even know you are there!

Learn more about the Flow Invention and Inventors

We are lucky to have the Co-Inventor and Co-Founder of Flowhive, Stuart Anderson attend the Botanical Bazaar. Stuart will be available at the event to tell you all about this local invention that has international success. He is also happy to answer all your buzzing questions and will have Flowhives avialable for purchase on the day.
