There's a reason peasant rebellions took place during certain times of year and didn't generally last for many years without unimaginable suffering.

And I'll grant that peasants with farm tools could kill shambling zombies. But how long until they got them all? And how much of a disruption would they cause until then?

And note that the worst case scenario was an Evil Overlord guiding them to ravage the land.
