Our Programs

Our farm programs are ongoing agricultural activities aimed at producing quality food for local consumption and agricultural commercial entrepreneurship.

Mango Plantation

This represents the biggest part of the farm. Situated between The Orange and The Cashew Fields. Presently, there are over 1500 mango trees. Five varieties are to be found: Diour, Kent, Kit, Maya and Bakary-Ceesay

Bee Keeping- Agriculture

There are over 10,000 fruit a tree on Kankanba. Because there are over 15 varieties, some will flower throughout the year. This makes Kankanba an ideal place for beekeeping.

We are engaged in all-year-apiculture. 75 colonized Kenyan-improved bee hives are installed in an ecologically well adapted environment. A multitude of varieties of flowers are available to our health and busy bees: mangoes, cashew, oranges, malina, eucalyptus, peanuts, beans and a large variety of annual weeds and other perennials.

Orange Plantation

Located at the entrance area of the farm. 1600 citrus trees with a large variety of oranges (Washington, Neville, Sukur, Japan and several mandarin species

Lime Line

A 400-meter long life-fence delimiting the Orange and Mango Fields. Constitute 450 high yielding limes trees.

Moringa Line

A 2-hectar land is reserved for cultivating Moringa. 250 Moringa trees has been planted in August 2020 and they are doing very well as they grow to reach maturity

Peanut Cultivation

During the rainy season, from June to October, we cultivate peanuts. We use tradition methods to do this. The peanut straw is used as animal feed. The peanuts are used for cooking several Gambian dishes

Banana Plantation

A 150 square meter area has been set out for banana cultivation. Ditches (120x70x40cm has been filled with cow dung and peanut shells. With 2 banana suckers per ditch, presently, 400 banana has been planted.

 

Baby Garden Nursery

This is a 120 square meter area, located at the main entrance of the farmyard. It is central in the farming activities. Here fertile soil is mixed with extra humus, filled in polythene bags. A large variety of seed are nursed here. The main goal is to demonstrate how to grow plants from seed or cuttings to full plant. The seedlings are then either transplanted into the farmyard or sold to generate funds

Sheep and goat Farming

Ruminants have significant cultural, traditional and religious significance in the Gambian society. Huge numbers of sheep is needed to cover the needs of this most wanted ruminant for cultural events The huge number of sheep needed cannot be produced in the Gambia at this point in time. Large numbers are imported from neighbouring Senegal, Mali and Mauritania. The climatic conditions of rearing and breeding sheep is favourable hen Kankanba is contributing to sheep production in the Gambia under animal friendly conditions.

We developed a sheep rearing and breeding scheme which provide large numbers of healthy appealing sheep at affordable price to the Gambian populace. They are adequately housed, fed and medicated. These animals are integrated in the farm harmoniously for therapy, biological fertilization and recreation.
