This hive lets you become a beekeeper and gives you honey on tap when needed.
It’s called Flow Hive 2 and a simple twist on its flow key splits apart the honeycomb to harvest pure, untouched, and unprocessed honey right out of the beehive into jars on the harvesting shelf.

It’s made from sustainably sourced timber with brass fittings and includes an observation window so you can see when the honey is ready without opening up the hive. The extraction process is claimed to be very gentle without disturbing the bees.
Flow Hive is perfect for beginners or experienced beekeepers and makes honey harvesting less disruptive to the hive and less of an arduous task for the beekeeper. It comes with a tray to trap pests and the legs can be adjusted for uneven ground.
Bees are tiny environmental champions and without them, the variety of food sources would be far less. They are pollinators and provide fertilisation to plants and flowers. It’s important to actively take care of them so they can take care of us!
