Not even in their wildest imaginations could Cedar Anderson and his dad Stuart have ever dreamed that their ingenious design of a honey-dispensing beehive, known as Flow Hive™, would become the #1 most successful fundraising campaign in Indiegogo’s history. When they launched their campaign one month ago their goal was to raise $70,000 in 30 days — they reached that goal in 477 seconds. As of this morning the Andersons have raised a total of $11,338,856.
Flow Hive™ is being described by experts as the most significant innovation in beekeeping since 1852. The revolutionary beehive invention allows you to harvest honey without opening the hive and with minimal disturbance to the bees. “Turn the tap and watch as pure, fresh, clean honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar,” they explain on their campaign page. “No mess, no fuss, no expensive processing equipment and without disturbing the bees.” Of course, there is much more to beekeeping than harvesting honey — you need to know what you’re doing.
