Crickets chirping bees buzzing Voiceover We have evolved alongside the honeybee in a symbiotic relationship. We care for them, they pollinate our crops, and of course, make lots of delicious honey. But getting the golden nectar has always been quite a task. I just thought it was crazy to have to crack the hive open, pull the hive apart, stress out all the bees, and spend all day in the shed just to get your honey. I thought, Hmm, there must be a better way. So, my dad and I got to work.
And we’ve done it. Now, you can simply turn a tap and pure, fresh honey flows right out of your hive. Delicious, ready for you to eat. That’s amazing, it’s amazing. It’s honey on tap. Voiceover For those that don’t know, harvesting your honey used to be a real labor of love. You had to protect yourself from stings, fire up a smoker to sedate the bees, crack the hive open, lift heavy boxes, pull out the frames, trying not to squash bees brush them off the combs or use a leaf blower,.
Transport the frames to a processing shed, cut the wax capping off, filter the honey and clean up all the mess. Then, the frames have to go back to the hives again. Now, you don’t need to do any of that. Turn a tap, sit back, and watch the honey pour out. It’s pure, unprocessed, untouched, delicious honey, directly from the hive. No mess, no fuss, no expensive equipment, and much more friendly for the bees. This is the first time in the world this has been possible. There is nothing else like it.
Flow Hive Full Reveal
It really is a revolution. We can see into the hive, we can see when the honey’s ready, and we can take it away in such a gentle way. What a wonderful thing. Voiceover The flow frames are designed with clear ends so you can easily check the hive is healthy and the colony is strong. We can watch all the girls turning nectar into honey and see when it’s ready, and isolate individual combs, allowing you to taste all the different flavors of the seasons. You can just harvest one frame and get three kilograms.
Of honey, or harvest more than 20 kilograms per box. Now that you can tap it off so easily means that when there is a good honey flow, you can keep up with the bees and harvest a lot more honey. So, how does it work The flow frame consists of already partly formed honeycomb cells. The bees complete the comb with their wax and fill the cells with honey, capping it off, ready for harvest. When you turn the handle, our patented splitcell technology creates channels inside the comb, allowing the honey to flow down and out.
Of the hive, while the bees are undisturbed on the comb surface. Turn the tap again, which resets the comb into the original position and allows the bees to chew the wax back and fill it with honey again. For the commercial beekeeper, the frames are built to accommodate a pneumatic system, which means you can flick a switch and harvest your whole apiary at once. We’ve been testing prototypes with beekeepers from around the world. I’ve spent hours taking honey out of hives. This system is just, blows my mind.
I can tell you, I was very excited too when it actually worked chuckling I actually put the tubes in and watched the honey come out. I was sitting there going chuckling What I was completely amazed and surprised at the amount of honey that came out. It was easy to use, and there was very little disturbance to the whole hive. It’s this oversimplistic idea of how a hive can work, and yet here, you’ve actually accomplished that. That’s mindboggling. That’s amazing. Voiceover Over the last decade, we have been.
Through many prototypes. We now have our design finalized and have been testing it for the past three years. Now we would like you to join us, and become part of this evolution in beekeeping. We are currently working with a top Australian manufacturer to produce the highest quality product. However, to produce on a large scale we’ll require expensive tooling and the capital to produce all the parts at a volume discount. This is where we need your help through crowd funding to make our flow hive affordable and available to everyone.
Bees are such a crucial part of our world, so if you’re not ready for a hive of your own but you would like to support this new innovation and a new community of beekeepers around the globe, then please make a donation pledge. Or perhaps you’ve been dreaming of having your very own bee hive in your backyard, on your rooftop, in your community garden or school. Well, now is the time, and it’s never been so easy for the beekeeper and so easy on the bees. For less than the cost of a standard bee hive.
And the extracting equipment, you can have our superefficient, beefriendly flow hive. Or maybe you already have bees, and just want to add our flow frames to your hive so you can experience the joy of watching the bees and harvesting honey in this new way. To reward you for jumping in early and helping us kickstart this project, we are offering this invention at a discounted rate. Be one of the first in the world to have delicious, fresh honey on tap, straight from the hive, with none of the messy, hard work or disturbance.
