Lammaskallio, Tuusula

The ethos of ecological sustainability appears to be deeply ingrained within the very essence of the farm and its proprietors, who uphold a lifestyle centered around reverence and conservation of the past. The present-day main building, a construction from the late 1800s, along with a barn of nearly equivalent age, continue to serve their functions.

Throughout the 20th century, the farm experienced periods of housing both meat and dairy cattle. However, under the guidance of the new owner, the tradition of rearing sheep was reintroduced. Indigenous local breeds, namely the Finnsheep and Gray Finnsheep, are nurtured on these grounds. During the summer months, these sheep graze, contributing to vital landscape upkeep across Järvenpää and Tuusula. Their domain extends from lakeside territories to avian-rich wetlands.

Make sure to pay a visit to the farm store during your stopover! It’s an opportunity to engage in shopping and support their initiatives.

Maku Brewery

Since 2014, Maku Brewing has been crafting beers at Ristikivi in Tuusula. The brewery’s mindset towards beer production is rooted in the idea that beer can be created in an intelligent and resource-conscious manner. After use, the barley malt required for brewing is repurposed as feed for nearby farm animals. Packaging materials are selected from domestic and sustainable options. The beer itself is crafted from locally sourced barley malt, produced just 100 km away from our brewery. Furthermore, our brewery relies on eco-friendly forms of energy.

Numerous factors contribute to the carbon footprint of the brewery’s operations. As for the aspects that are currently beyond the brewery’s direct influence, they go above and beyond by double-compensating through reforestation and conservation programs for forests and wetlands. This approach has enabled Maku to achieve a carbon-negative beer production process.

The brewery’s store is open on Fridays from 2 PM to 6 PM and on Saturdays from 11 AM to 3 PM at Sarvivälkkeentie 12, Tuusula. And of course, you can also enjoy our beers at local restaurants!
