01.12.2023 LISTEN

In the heart of Ghana's agricultural tapestry, Madam Efua Frimpomaa stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit of farmers.

With soil-stained hands and a heart full of dedication, she has woven a legacy that echoes through the fields and resonates with the essence of Farmers Day.

Her journey began in 1990 when she earned the title of Agona District Best Farmer, cultivating the land with unwavering passion.

In 1996, she soared to new heights, being recognized as the Central Regional Best Plantain Farmer—a nod to her expertise in nurturing the very lifeblood of the nation's sustenance.

But Madam Efua Frimpomaa's story did not stop there. The following year, in 1997, she ascended to the pinnacle of recognition, clinching the Central Regional Overall Best Farmer title.

Her fields thrived under her watchful gaze, and her commitment to excellence set a standard for others to follow.

In 2004, the entire nation acknowledged her contributions as she was crowned The National Best Farmer.

A beacon of inspiration, Madam Efua Frimpomaa became a symbol of resilience and hard work in Ghana's agricultural landscape.

The following year, her efforts were not only recognized nationally but also celebrated on the grand stage as she received the Millennium Excellence Award in Agriculture.

What sets Madam Efua Frimpomaa apart is not just her accolades but the barrier she shattered.

In a male-dominated domain, she stands tall as the only woman to have claimed the prestigious National Best Farmer Award in Ghana.

Her triumph is a victory not only for herself but for every woman who aspires to plow the fields of their dreams.

As we celebrate Farmers Day, let us pay homage to Madam Efua Frimpomaa, a pioneer whose sweat and toil have nourished the roots of our nation.

May her story resonate through the furrows of time, inspiring generations of farmers to sow the seeds of dedication and reap the harvest of success.

Currently at 96 years, she is no more into active farming but has employed workers who are taking care of her farms.
