While other plantations often cultivate coffee and shea nut crops alongside cocoa, Gyarko Farms focuses only on cocoa bean. Our pursuit of the perfect cocoa bean starts with responsible crop management practices. Our goal is to produce premium cocoa beans without compromising our values or the environment.
By its nature, cocoa production is a sustainable business that harnesses the power of the sun to dry the beans. We are committed to doing our part to preserve the fragile ecosystem in which we live and operate. We embrace many agronomic practices designed to protect the environment, limit soil erosion, and preserve native tropical vegetation.
We closely follow the latest research and recommendations of the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana to ensure optimum plant propagation, plant density, pest control, nutrition, shade, pruning, soil and water management, and waste management. Adopting the latest agronomic innovations and optimizing production allows us to both increase yield and quality.
Cocoa beans are found in the ripe pods of the cacao tree, a delicate tree that does not begin producing until its fifth year. These pods are harvested and cracked open to reveal the beans inside. Each pod contains between 20 to 50 cocoa beans. The beans are then fermented and dried, a process that takes about seven to ten days. From there, we inspect and sort the dried cocoa beans for quality before sending them to the Ghana Cocoa Board and its Cocoa Marketing Company subsidiary for export. The Cocoa Marketing Company promotes, sells, and delivers Ghana’s cocoa to local and international cocoa processors and traders.
Located in Sefwi Djaboso – Bonsai in the Western Region of Ghana, Gyarko Farms produces high quality cocoa beans. Our large Cocoa Plantation is on hundreds of acres of lush land. The tropical climate of Western Ghana lends itself to cocoa production. In fact, Ghana is the world’s second largest cocoa producer.
Recognizing the manually intensive nature of cocoa production, Gyarko Farms is a large employer committed to treating its employees with dignity and respect. As a family-oriented company and ardent supporter of human rights, we are opposed to child labor, an issue that has affected the cocoa industry. We are committed to being a part of the solution by not employing child labor and by paying fair wages to our adult workforce.
We currently employ about 50 full-time employees with a smaller team that works on a contract basis. We further support our employees through training in the latest agronomic concepts, promoting from within, and equipping each employee with the tools and knowledge needed to excel on the job.
The Ghana Cocoa Board has stressed that the cocoa industry is vital to Ghana’s socio-economic development. We are proud of our small part in helping to build a stronger economy and a brighter future for the people of Ghana. Contact us today to learn more…
