Farmer Maggot

Revision as of 15:52, 29 June 2006 by Ebakunin (Talk | contribs)

Farmer Maggot was a Hobbit who lived in Bamfurlong in the Eastfarthing of the Shire. He farmed in the Marish, close to the Shire's borders. Like many Hobbits of the borderlands he lived above ground, as opposed to a Hobbit-hole.

He was very cautious for a Hobbit and kept three large dogs to protect him: Fang, Grip, and Wolf.

Farmer Maggot was familiar with Tom Bombadil.
