Newbee in Cornwall

Hi, I’m looking to purchase a Flow Hive but I’m looking to understand who else in Cornwall has a Flow Hive? As I’ve had a mixed response from a local bee keeping group, and want to learn the basics and get local advice.

Welcome to the forum Scott and hope you get contact with local users of Flow Hives. Die-hard traditional bee keepers reject anything different to how they do their bee keeping.
A whole new way of taking honey from a hive can be totally rejected without even seeing a Flow Hive.
I have 4 Flow Hives in my apiary of Langstroth hives because I wanted to know about the pro’s and con’s and got some hands on knowledge about them.
I look at a Flow Hive as no different to a ‘normal’ bee hive, it is providing a home for the bees that you can manage them in. Only when it comes time to harvest the honey that things are different.
The best way with a bee group which has a closed mind is to use them for general bee keeping care and management advice and not say anything about a Flow Hive, or if you find other Flow Hive users then have your own sub group.
Cheers
