"Flow" Hive donated to the Association.

This is an image from this news item. (click to view the video)The Australian company behind the revolutionary "Flow Hive" concept has donated a "Flow Super" to the Association, in the hope of encouraging members to adopt the concept.
The Super will fit on top of a National brood box, and contains 8 specially designed plastic "Flow Frames". Once the bees have filled the Flow frames with honey, a lever is pulled and the honey flows directly from the frames into jars , with no extraction equipment needed. The super can simply be returned to the hive for the bees to refill.
Sounds too good to be true? Come and find out for yourself. On Sunday April 23rd, at the Association Apiary, we will be showing how the hive is assembled and how it works, before placing it on one of the Apiary hives.
The inventor of the Flow Hive, Stuart Anderson, is visiting the UK this summer, and we have arranged for him to talk to the Association on Monday 5th June at Coytrahen Community Hall, 7.30 p.m. Don't miss it!
