This was our very first Flow Hive harvest!

It took the bees one full month (June) to fill the flow frames with honey.

It took about 2 hours to harvest all honey. On a 90 degree F day.

We believe our honey was flowing so fast and overflowing due to it being such a hot day. So, if you are harvesting when it is over 90 degrees definitely only break open 1/3 of the frame at a time, otherwise you should be good to break open the entire whole frame at once.

We yielded about 3 1/2 gallons of honey, weighed at 45 pounds (excluding containers)
