Most villagers work in the more urbanised areas, but cattle is also kept and Tommerup is home to a stone factory. Because of clay shortages, this factory is mainly used for special ceramic products, such as a vase, five metres high, which was exhibited on the World's Fair in Sevilla, in 1992.
In 1996, Tommerup Stationsby declared itself Cultural Village of Europe. In 1999, it became part of the European network of villages known as Cultural Villages of Europe.
