Important Things to Remember About Straw Golems

  1. Straw Golems can plant or sow seeds and saplings. They can also harvest ripe fruits and crops for you and place them in a chest.
  2. You can assign which chest they will place harvested items to by shift-right-clicking on a straw golem and then selecting the chest.
  3. The Straw Golem’s movement is limited, which means you have to place chests nearby.
  4. You can also use fences to prevent them from wandering too far from your crops or base.
  5. Straw Golems survive for a maximum of seven in-game days before despawning. 
  6. Feeding them apples can restore their health.

And that’s how you can make helpful Straw Golems in Minecraft. Make sure the Forge mod works before you try making them so you won’t have any problems.
