Stories and facts

The Tetteh Quarshie cocoa farm, also known as the Ecomuseum of Cocoa, is the founding cocoa farm in Ghana, situated in Akuapim-Mampong, approximately 58 kilometers from Accra.

Established in 1879 by Tetteh Quarshie, the farm was founded using seeds he brought back from Bioko, Equatorial Guinea. Remarkably, three of the original trees planted by Quarshie still stand on the farm today.

Currently spanning around one acre, the farm is managed by the Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana, preserving its historical significance and continuing its legacy in the nation's cocoa industry.
