Kete-Krachi Farms Ltd is revolutionizing mechanized cashew farming in Ghana with modern technologies and guaranteed high yielding planting material with irrigation to sustain high-density planting. Our vision is to grow cashews most efficiently with the highest yield per hectare and then Process the cashews for Export. This we will do through continuous learning and training of our staff, using the latest technologies to improve yield in the field and processing at the factory. Kete Krachi Farms was incorporated in 2016 after five (5) years of research of the cashew industry in Ghana. Our conclusion from that research leads us to believe that the most profitable way to grow cashews is through large commercially mechanized farms and Processing also for Export. It is worth noting that Ghana exported about one billion dollars ($1B USD) of raw cashew nuts in 2017/18 harvest season. This farm is located in the Krachi West District, in the Oti Region of Ghana. It is to the northeast of Kete Krachi township; approximately 9 kilometers and also to the west of the Volta River. Geographically, the site’s boundaries run through three communities namely, Abujuro Akura, Jaayo and Gyerentor and measures approximately 500 hectares.
