Knockalva, an agricultural powerhouse
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.
