The sandy soil is perfect for growing radish which are exported to the UK and Europe, with the bulk of production during the winter period.

Prior to West Africa Farms being established, the local community were primarily subsistence farmers.
WAF has enabled the community to develop local agriculture with the provision of a constant water supply, a medical centre, and schools. Workers can also harvest any onions left on the farm (gleaning) for their own use.
