In 2004 the association of “Business center – Elhovo” started growing herb plants, according to the “Support the producers of herb and alternative agricultural products” project. The project was financed by the Kingdom of Norway and UNDP. The project gives sustainable precondition for biological agricultural development and especially raising medical plants in the region of Strandja – Sakar. In 2005 farm “The Island” is certificated as bio farm.

The name “Tronka” comes from a legend for the “Tronks”, saved for generations in the area of Strandja. Legend tells the story of tsar Peter’s traveling to Tsarigrad. During his travel he passed through the region of Strandjan-Sakar and was amazed by the beauty of the local maidens. Soon after that he began spreading all over the kingdom stories about those beautiful women, and how they were honored to stand by his throne. This is how the women got the name “Tronks”.

Also Tronki was the name people used to call the citizens of Yambol area. The land was given to khan Tervel, and his task was to protect the south part of Bulgaria in case of invasion, while the Bulgarian army from the north was preparing for a battle. The women from the region started wearing so called throne crowns and trains.

Another legend tells of how strong and brave men were gathered for the Trojan War. Only few men have survived and came back. They were called Trojans or Tronki.
