About Tumutumu

Tumutumu community is named after the well know Tumutumu hill in the area. The history of the name , Tumutumu, is interesting.

Originally the name, Tuku Tumu, meaning dry firewood found in this area, was too difficult for the first missionaries to pronounce and was changed to Tumutumu. People from this area migrated from Nyeri as the community expanded.

The soil, full of good loam, is very suitable for farming activities. Coffee is a popular crop in this area.

Other crops include maize, beans, bananas, mangos, avocados and other vegetables and fruits. Dairy farming is also practiced in the community.

Tumutumu has partnered with 410 Bridge since 2015. Their major languages are Kikuyu, Swahili, and English.
