The Northfarthing (or North Farthing) was the least populated region of the Shire.

It was known for having a slightly cooler climate then the rest of the Shire, and snow was more common there. The soil tended to be somewhat rocky but was good enough to farm and was where the Shire's barley for their beer came from.

According to the The Atlas of Middle-earth, the region appeared to be the second largest farthing in the Shire and a farthest of about 100 miles across.[1][2]

Notable Places in the NorthfarthingEdit

  • Long Cleeve was the home of the small part of the Took clan known as the North-Tooks, descendants of Bandobras Took, who settled here after the Battle of Greenfields.
