The Brong Ahafo Region is acclaimed as the food basket of the country because of the number of foodstuffs that are produced in the region and transported to other regions.
Besides these food crops, the region is one of the main producers of cocoa, the golden pod, which has for a long time been the mainstay of Ghana’s economy.
The region has two types of climates, namely moist semi-deciduous forest and the guinea savanna woodland, which are conducive to the production of a variety of cash and food crops.
Majority of the population in the region are engaged in agriculture. These farmers are engaged mostly in crop farming, livestock rearing, fish farming and tree growing; and produce a substantial quantity of food to feed people in the region and beyond. Because of the regional nature, two companies by name AdjaKing Height Company Ltd (AHC FARM’S LTD) Kintampo B/A and AKT INVESTMENT, West Legon, Accra have donated books, pen, Pencil, Chalks, laptops to their farm community at Kintampo north, a village called Kwabinanum near Kunsu, their aims and target is to help Education through Agriculture, AHC FARM’S LTD and AKT INVESTMENT are into Cashew nuts, Coconuts Farm’s and animal Farm’s.Their vision is to establish a fruit processing Company in the near feature and employ people at their farms and the fruit processing Company to support the one district one factory project by the current government.

The 1D1F is one of the President’s major campaign promises to Ghanaians in 2016.
The programme is expected to bring at least a factory each in all the 216 districts in the country.
Already some 300 factories have been identified to be constructed, which will create more than 500,000 to one million jobs from 2017 to 2020.
To demonstrate its commitment to fulfilling this promise, the government has earmarked the sum of ¢456.3 million for the implementation of the project.
The Brong Ahafo Region has played its role before and after its creation over the past 60 years since Ghana attained independence by serving as the food basket.
However, a lot remains to be done to enable the region to rehabilitate its over-aged farms, tap its tourist’s potentials and invest in the education of its children.
There is also the need for the establishment of industries to process the numerous agricultural products into finished products to improve the economy of the region.
