IamA We are Stuart and Cedar Anderson, the father-son inventing team behind Flow Hive. Our invention makes the honey extraction process easier on the beekeeper and easier on the bees. AMA!
My short bio: The traditional method of extracting honey is hot, heavy, sticky, time-consuming work that often involves being stung by bees and which requires space and specialised equipment. . Over the past 10 years, we've been developing the Flow Hive system which takes nearly all of the work out of extracting honey from beehives.
We recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo hoping to raise $70,000 to set up for production. So far, supporters have pledged nearly $9 million.
