Hobbit farmhands are helpers to Hobbit farmers. They spawn naturally in Hobbit farms in the Shire, working away in the field. Hobbit farmhands are distinguishable by the hoe they hold in one hand. They are passive mobs, and will attempt to flee when attacked or when an Orc is in the near vicinity. As of Public Beta 20, Hobbits have large visible feet, complete with a layer of coarse hair.


Hobbit farmhands can be hired from farmers for a price of 40 coins, provided that the player has at least +50 alignment with the Hobbits.

Upon hiring a Hobbit farmhand, the player earns the achievement "Hired Hands"


They work similarly to other farmhands, however they work faster than all other farmhands. They will help you sow crops and harvest them if you give them the seeds. For more information, please consult the farmhands page.
