... what it became in the films, but what it is in real life, a working village...well, kind of. Exquisite details down to the life of trees and hobbit hole windows were that captured by Peter Jackson, but the hard work that continues to give this village life including the real plants, trees and vegetables that grow is that of the fascinated tourists that come to see it.
