SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE, Va. (WATE) — A farm in Southwest Virginia is honoring Dolly Parton with a monument made out of hay.
Creating a statue out of hay has become an annual tradition for the Bays Family Beef, located in the Smith Mountain Lake area of Virginia. This year, their Doll-hay statue stands tall with a microphone ready to sing.
“Once again this became a community project and I’m beyond grateful for all of the helping hands that pitched in to make her so extra. I have the best friends & neighbors in the world!” wrote the farm on Facebook.
The farm added that a music video with Doll-hay would be coming soon. In past years, the farm has created statues inspired by Winnie the Pooh, Charlie Brown and Willie Nelson. These statues also got their down music videos that can be seen on the farm’s YouTube channel.
A post to their TikTok account shows how the farm created the statue. The video shows the farm used three hay bales to create the statue, two for her body and on for her face. One thing not made out of hay is Doll-hay’s bosom. To replicate Parton’s famous silhouette, two yoga balls were used.
The family-run farm has been creating the hay statues for over a decade.
