Bison in Bala


Please, Do Not Poke the Bison, originally uploaded by Furryscaly.

Bison in Wales?........Yep, it's true. In the land better known for bleating sheep than bellowing buffalo, there are bison browsing on the Green Green Grass of home. (Right, that's quite enough!) .
Those of you who will know North Wales quite well, then the Rhug Estate Organic Farm and Shop is a must stop near Corwen on the way to Bala. It doesn't look much from the outside, more like an upmarket roadside portacabin settlement, but the quality of the produce in the shop and on the food stands outside are of the highest order. If you're not a vegetarian, this place is a must if you fancy a bison burger (reared in the field next door!) After that, pop across the road to one of the most unique ecclesiastic experiences in Wales at the spectacularly beautiful Rug Chapel. I won't spoil it for you, but don't miss this hidden gem.
