Knock­alva, an agri­cul­tural pow­er­house

Jamaica Gleaner - - CLASSIFIEDS -

THE KNOCK­ALVA Agri­cul­tural School lies in the midst of one of Ja­maica’s most fer­tile ex­panse of agri­cul­tural lands, the ru­ral com­mu­nity of Ram­ble in east­ern Hanover.

The school, which is the only one of its kind in the par­ish of Hanover and west­ern Ja­maica, could be de­scribed as an agri­cul­tural train­ing pow­er­house. It was one of the most sought-af­ter ac­k­ees, callaloo, bread­fruit, jerk sea­son­ing and other condi­ments, and fruit juices. It also does pro­cess­ing for pri­vate com­pa­nies.

Knock­alva Agri­cul­tural School sits on 199 acres of land, and is a stone’s throw from the Ram­ble main road, which links the parishes of Westmoreland and St James to Hanover and also leads to St El­iz­a­beth via Bethel Town.
