Just would like to hear about beekeepers using Flow Hives in numbers that can produce enough honey to supply larger markets…i.e. 10 to 50 hives. What challenges have you faced with Flow Hive equipment and what innovations are you incorporating to make your sideline viable?
After 3 seasons of use, our experience is that the bees really like to store honey in those FH frames…and we are continually comparing them to traditionally run hives.
And we’ve played a bit with manifolding supers together.
The piping drains externally through the building walls into filters mounted in 5 gallon pails… we keep our bees inside buidings year round.
