This guy is creating a real buzz here at Snugburys

Standing at 40ft tall, our brand new sculpture needs to be seen to be bee-lieved! He is made of straw and hand split wood, which is coated in a natural black dye to give him his iconic stripes. The steel frame was designed by the very talented Mike Harper from Harbrook Engineering.

Did you know that one third of the UK’s bee population has disappeared in the last decade?

For over 20 years, we’ve been creating giant straw sculptures to mark anniversaries and other major events. This year, our choice was an easy one! Being a certified organic farm we do our best to enhance the farms natural environment for the local wildlife and now we want to help raise awareness around bee conservation.

We have teamed up with The Bumble Bee Conservation Trust to help them keep up the incredible work that they do in protecting our bees. For every piece of our specially made chocolate honeycomb we’ll be donating 50p!

In celebration of our new arrival we have also been busy bees developing a delicious homemade flavour. Our new Lavender and Honey ice cream is created with our own burnt honey ripple made using local honey.

Bee sure to fly in soon!
