The chairman of Darko Farms Mr Kwabena Darko had his training in Israel in the latter part of the 1950s and since Darko farms is marking 50yrs this year hence they made that trip.

Before embarking on the  journey to  Kumasi, they had visited Cape Coast Castle where she was  very emotional about what had transpired several centuries ago and that was the  slave trade.
