TARKWA BREMAN COMMUNITY FARMS





Farming is the primary occupation of rural Ghanaians. As the world’s second leading exporter of cocoa, Ghana generates approximately $3.2 billion in cocoa revenue annually. Yet, the average farmer still struggles to earn a decent living. Our work

seeks to turn this tide by transforming cocoa farming from an engine of wealth for the elite to a resource that builds futures for farmers and their families.


The “Farm-for-Impact model’s revenue generation engine is powered when community members work on a community-run cocoa farm that is managed by Cocoa360. Led by Cocoa360’s farm managers and supervised by local leaders, community members take care of the cocoa crop through best farming practices. The profits from the harvest of the cocoa crop are then used to subsidize costs associated with education and healthcare services for community members who work on the farm.

The organization is currently exploring various avenues to increase its revenue generation in order to sustain the size and
quality of educational and healthcare programs offered.




OUR CURRENT STRATEGY FOR EXPANDING OUR FARMS IS TWO-PRONGED:

1. The acquisition and rehabilitation of matured cocoa farms


This involves acquiring already mature cocoa farmlands, rehabilitating them and maintaining them with Good
Agricultural Practices (GAP) for an increased yield. Historically, this strategy has earned the organization an
increase of over 70% in cocoa yield within 2-years of rehabilitation.

2. The cultivation of crops on raw land available to the organization

Our in-house agronomist will be leading our efforts to improve farm yields on
our matured cocoa farms, as well as cultivating alternative crops on
our uncultivated lands.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?


We invite you to invest in the future of our sustainablity efforts. Each donation of $1,000
allows us to expand our community farm by one acre of mature cocoa lands


INVEST IN OUR FARMS


At an optimum yield of 10-15 bags of cocoa per acre, your investment would allow us to generate between
$1,100 – $1,650 in farm revenue per year, bringing the organization closer to self-sustainability.
