Milan Kordestani has been a trailblazer since he was a little child. Milan fell in love with horse riding. He was ten years of age Milan was thrown from a horse. Most kids would never get back on a horse but Milan not only got back on the horse, he started riding in earnest. His teachers have stated that Milan has natural form as he began to train hard, winning blue ribbons for his efforts. By the time he was 15, Milan won the first leg of the Triple Crown and came in fourth place at the World Championship Horse Show. From there, Mr. Kordestani competed a year later and has reached a second place finish at the World’s Championship Horse Show. His highest ranking to date.
In tandem with his love of horses, Mr. Kordestani has founded Milan Farms in his sophomore year of highschool. Milan Farms specializes in humanely growing fowl, selling eggs and pure saffron. Everything grown on the farm is 100% organic and held to the highest standards of production. Milan Farms has started to experiment with creating saffron using hydroponic and aquaponic growing options. Mr. Kordestani became the first farmer to grow saffron hydropnically using sponges . In 2016 Milan Farms became a trademarked company and expanded to three farms across part of the country, selling saffron to the world. Part of the mission of Milan Farms has been to be completely transparent in their operations. What you see is what you get.
Now, at the age of eighteen, in addition to his Equestrian pursuits, Milan is a college student in the San Francisco area, works as a writer for the Huffington Post, and continues on as CEO of Milan Farms. To read more about Milan Kordestani and his farms, please click here.
