Honey Bunch

Flow Hive

What It Is: Above all things, I’m a pretty strong advocate for understand where your food comes and how it’s produced – and it’s great to see that general mentality reverberating through more and more of the population. More consumers than ever are interested in actually having a hand in their food production, with the rise of backyard gardens, urban chickens, and the like. Flow Hive is another one of those cool innovations that allows you to produce honey in your own backyard, without the muss and fuss and stress of a regular hive. Simply turn on a tap to squeeze out some of the golden stuff, and the bees will happily produce more, without the stress of having their hives sliced open. In a world where bee populations are of increasingly important concern, this is just another way to understand nature a little better (even if in a slightly unconventional way).

Who It’s For: Your city-dwelling sibling, who secretly pines for country living. Your kids, to teach them about nature and get the outdoors. The to be wed couple, as a unique gift that is as sweet as their love.

What It Costs: The full meal deal hive you see above is $699 USD, but there are other bits and pieces you can buy to modify an existing bee setup. They also sell a beekeeper’s kit for $150 USD to keep you from getting stung. Shipping, I believe, is free.

Where It’s At: Shop the Flow Hive site here!

    Fascinating, we love honey and use it quite a bit in cooking. The wooden structure looks pretty too.

    Very unique, but not for me.

    Planning on planting lots of flowers in my garden this year just for the bees. OMG this Honey Bunch would fit right in my garden. Added bonus that I would have my own honey, yummmmm!!

    very sweet idea for anyone

  7. I don’t think this is for me. Not a huge consumer of honey

  8. Anne Derkat says:

    I think it is a super idea. My son who lives up north on a large corner lot would have room for one of these.

  9. Aimee says:

    I’d buy this. Very cool.

  10. Dreena says:

    It’s a great idea! Love honey. One really needs to know what one is doing. My friend is a beekeeper.

    This one isn’t for me. I’m allergic to bee stings.

    Great idea for someone but not for me.

    Anything to get the bee population thriving again is a great idea — and especially good for honey lovers.

    bonus entry – interesting idea but I am super scared of bees/wasps/stinging things so definitely a no for me

  22. KellyPC says:

    That sounds amazing! A few years ago I discovered that a neighbour of mine at the top of the street on other side of a shared laneway keeps bees behind his garage & I’ve been fascinated ever since!

  23. Love it, very attractive. The bee’s knees.

    I would love this!!!

  28. Jessica eapen says:

    I’d pass on this; I’m not a fan of bees!

  29. We have the Flow Hive and love it, but I have to say – it is NOT “no muss, no fuss”. You still have to get bees, maintain the hive, and look after them – they don’t just produce honey on day one and that’s it. The only thing that’s actually easier is the honey extraction method at harvest time. Along with checking on the bees, you also have to make sure to leave them enough stored honey during the winter so they don’t die – they don’t make it year round! It’s kind of like saying “here’s a puppy and a bag of food – it’s easy!” Beekeeping still requires responsible ownership 🙂
