Welcome Chris! There is a very active new Flow hive beekeeper in your state, isn't there @Bobby_Thanepohn? I am sure that he can give you lots of good advice on where to get equipment and bees.
The Flow hive is just a different way of harvesting honey. Everything else is done the same way as traditional beekeeping, including inspections, feeding, re-queening and monitoring of disease. The benefit of Flow is that the sticky mess stays outside, the honey is probably better quality, and there is less waste/cleaning up. All good things, but of course there are cautions too, and if you spend time reading this forum, you will learn what they are. Like; not harvesting too much at once, or you may flood your hive; checking for capped frames or you will lose honey and it may not be ripe; harvesting frames in sections to avoid back pressure flooding, etc. All of these things are just part of the learning process. Nothing major, but glad you found us to help you with your journey! Welcome, once again.
