Applebottom

Large apple orchards surround the village and its residents raise some of the finest pigs in the glen. Forty stout halfling families live here in wattle-and-daub houses with thatch roofs. There is a mill, a curing house, a barn, and a bakery. Ettins raiding from the hills to the north are a common occurrence. They keep a few ponies for pulling carts.

Economy

They trade apples and pigs for grain.

Government

The reeve is a stout halfling named Gwendolyn Stormrest, who was elected by the villagers. She is an old priestess of Fulla with a knack for weather prediction.

Food

Applebottom is known for cider and sausages. They raise a lot of pigs, as well as some chickens and geese. They also have quince trees and make preserves.
