This was the first cocoa farm in This was the first cocoa farm in Ghana and the birthplace of Ghana’s burgeoning cocoa industry. The original seedlings were brought from Fernando Po Island just off the coast of Equatorial Guinea by Tetteh Quarshie himself in 1879. Three original trees remain. There’s little to see (don’t expect a visitor centre or shop), but a guide will take you around the plantation for a few cedi – get the price first. Contact the caretaker at the Mampong Chief’s Palace for entry.
