You can’t scroll through social media these days without coming across home vegetable patch pictures.
There’s a rising trend towards sustainable living that has inspired people to grow their own veggies and herbs at home instead of sourcing them from stores.
And it hasn’t stopped there.
Most of us enjoy honey (right up until we spot the price tag in the shops), but few of us know what makes a honey bee tick.
We do know that bees are an important part of sustaining the environment. They promote pollination and help to keep nature in balance, and they’re also dying out at an alarming rate.
With that in mind, if you’d like to add a beehive to your garden, and honey to your harvest, you might want to look into a Flow Hive.
A Flow Hive is a standard beehive that has Flow Frames in the honey storage part. A beehive is usually made up of; the brood box where the queen bee lays eggs, and the ‘supers’ with honeycomb for the storage of honey. A ‘Flow Super’ is a beehive box using Flow Frames that the bees store honey in.
Flow Hives are compact and self-contained with taps on the side to make harvesting your honey as easy as pouring a pint.
Take a look:
The Honey Flow website tells you everything that you need to know to get started as an amateur beekeeper.
The company does deliver to South Africa, but if you’ve ever ordered anything from overseas, you know that it will likely get held up at customs – especially because Flow Hives are comprised of wood.
Now is not the time you want to be forced to deal with customs officials. In fact, you never want to deal with customs officials.
The alternative is to order your hive using Postbox Courier.
It’s pretty simple. Postbox Courier gives you a shipping address in the US, UK and Hong Kong, where your overseas orders can be sent.
Get a quote from them regarding how much the hive you want would cost to ship to your door here in SA, and if you’re happy, you’re looking at three to five working days until it arrives
No customs, delays, or unforeseen fees. They handle all of that for you.
With lockdowns in place worldwide, companies are subject to regulations that might prevent deliveries. As we know from our own experiences here in South Africa, those regulations can change at the drop of a hat.
To find out when delivery of overseas goods to South Africa is possible, pop by the Postbox Courier website, drop them an email at email@example.com, or give them a call on 011 083 7792 to find out more.
