With this brilliant invention by Stuart and Cedar Anderson, a father-and-son beekeeper team in Australia, honey bees around the world can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Their Flow Hive invention allows beekeepers to harvest honey from their hives without disturbing the bees inside.
The clever invention works by providing the bees with a partially-completed wall of honeycomb cells that they then complete with their own wax. After they fill these cells with honey and cap them with wax, the beekeeper can open the other end, allowing the honey to flow out into a tap without ever disturbing the bees. The bees simply reopen the cells and fill them up again.
Taste the difference
With Flow’s patented technology you can harvest from your beehive in small batches direct to your jar.
Without the blending of conventional harvesting, you can experience the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle!) seasonal variations in color, flavor, and bouquet.
The distinctive flavors in each jar of Flow Hive harvested honey will reflect your specific location and seasonality of the nectar flow in your environment.
