Yes, beekeeping is a wonderful learning experience, and a Flow Hive is one of the easiest ways to get started!

The Flow Hive makes extracting the honey easy. While this saves much of the work involved in keeping bees, you will still need to observe your bees and occasionally open the hive to ensure your bees are healthy. You’ll need protective gear such as a hive tool, smoker, bee suit and gloves to do this.

Our online Beginner Beekeeping Course features expert-led advice on getting your first hive started. Any time, any device. Whether you are a newbee or an experienced beekeeper wanting to refresh your skills, our beginner beekeeping course has handy tips and information to get you started on your beekeeping journey with confidence.

It’s often useful to get in touch with a local beekeeper, as they’ll have the information most relevant to your area. But remember - opinions can vary quite a bit from one individual beekeeper to the next! Most regions have a beekeepers’ club or association that can advise on whether you need to register your hive and other local relevant regulations. They can also help you to get your hive started and make routine inspections. We encourage you to join a local beekeeping club and check out the online community on the Flow beekeepers Facebook Group.
