Agriculture Minister Seeks to Make Govt.’s Farm in Grand Cape Mount Functional After Decades of Dormancy


Agriculture Minister Jeanine M. Cooper over the weekend inspected 1,200 hectares of farmland owned by the Government of Liberia in Teh Town, Garwulah District in Grand Cape Mount County.

The farmland is located 65 km west of Monrovia and precisely 4 km off the Ibrahim Babangida Highway along the dirt road towards, Robertsport, the main town in Grand Cape Mount.

Residents in Teh said President William Tolbert established the farm in the 1970s and had rice and other food crops planted.

Minister Cooper says the MOA will work out means of activating the farm to enhance local food production either through the private sector or private-public partnership.
