Here it is, the Flow Hive. Much anticipated and even better than expected, complete with a plaque on the side saying ‘Founding Supporter’ and a matching hat. The hive has a whole different way of harvesting the honey, invented and improved over the last 10 years and launched with an Indigogo campaign last year.
C and his father were very impressed with the quality of the kitset – materials, construction and instructions.
A special platform has been built for it and a friend of a friend has been asked for help with getting bees and instruction on how to keep them healthy.
My photos are celebratory rather than explanatory, so I will direct you to the website for the full story and videos showing how it works at http://www.honeyflow.com.
