Farmer Profile for Ken Amoah

Experience

Please describe your past and/or present farming experience:

I was born into a Farming family; we farmed Palm Fruits, Oranges and Tangerines; we also had an active Commercial scale Egg Production Poultry Farm that met the needs of the Community. In the US I have provided hands on assistance to my brother on his commercial scale Potato Farms in Delano and Visalia California. I have researched and practiced Aquaponics on a small scale in my backyard and with additional technical expertise readily available from my brother who has a Phd in Genetics, complimented by my background in Finance Accounting and Project Management, further supported by my greater family eagerly available to assist, I am currently looking for land to establish an Organic Farm that uses Aquaponics techniques to produce quality fish and Vegetables to the community.
