The Future of Beekeeping — Now.

Flow is the future of beekeeping. Cedar and Stuart Anderson, who come from a long time of beekeepers, came up with the revolutionary idea after Cedar felt bad about how many bees get crush by the honey during harvest of a traditional beehive. It took the two of them over a decade to come up with the Flow system and after one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns, a new way of beekeeping was born. It is, as the Flow website claims, “so much easier for the beekeeper and so much easier on the bees.”

So what’s the big deal? How does the Flow system work?

The Flow™ frame can fit into a standard langstroth super. The frame consists of honeycomb cells that are not fully formed. The bees can then fill these cells with their honey and complete the formation of the cells with their wax. When the frame is full of honey, a special tool can be inserted into the end of the frame and rotated to split the cells open. This causes the cells to turn into channels. The bees are protected from being drowned in honey and no smoke is required to protect the beekeeper. After the cells have turned into channels, the honey can then flow  out the end of the frame and straight into a jar.
