Flow Hive on Indiegogo delivers honey on tap, making beekeeping easier for humans and bees.

Cedar Anderson, 34, and Stuart Anderson, 60, have developed an innovative beekeeping system that provides honey on tap with no need to crack open and pull apart the hives. After field-testing their invention for three years on beekeepers in Australia and around the world, on Sunday the Andersons launched a Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise $70,000 to fund production of Flow Hive.
