BeeInventive is following up the success of its backyard beehive with the Flow Hive 2. The newest home beehive expands on the original Flow Hive to include a host of new features that take inspiration from customer feedback. The Flow Hive 2 is aimed towards amateur beekeepers and claims to simplify the process of extracting honey. This is achieved through the use of artificial honeycombs and a built-in tap that allows honey to easily flow out. A window on the side of the hive allows users to monitor the entire process.
The Flow Hive 2 fulfills a unique role in food production, as it gives power to DIY makers and producers of local food. The hive has timed its release to coincide a beekeeping ban being lifted in New York City, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Seattle, and looks to fulfill the needs of consumers who need to know where their food comes from. The makers of the Flow Hive see the product as one to support bees globally and as a tool to show the impact of bees on humanity.
