Economic activities

Agriculture, tourism and fishing are major economic activities in Kilifi. Cash crops grown in the county include cashew nuts, sisal, coconut palms and mangoes. Staples like banana, cassava, maize, green grams, cow peas are also cultivated. Along the coastal plains, farmers grow horticultural crops and vegetables such as tomatoes, chillis, onions, brinjals and okra.

Dairy and beef farming is also practised, accounting to a significant quantity of beef and milk consumed in the county and beyond. Buzeki Dairy, which produces the popular Molo Milk brand, has a milk processing plant in Kilifi Plantations. Small-scale farmers also keep sheep, goats, rabbits, pigs and bees.

Visitors to Kilifi often visit attraction sites such as Gede Ruins, Mnarani Ruins and the Mida Creek - which in combination attract thousands of tourists creating employment for the local communities.

Fishing is widely practiced because of the high demand for fish in Kilifi's hotel industry. Sand harvesting and extraction of gypsum, limestone, rubies and barites have been carried out over the years. The discovery of rare minerals in Kilifi, including titanium and niobium, is expected to generate a lot of revenue from the county's mining industry.
