The founder of Milan Farms, Milan Kordestani was born in Stanford California. Milan’s love for horses started early on in his life at the age of 10. One of the more crucial moments came after being thrown off a horse, instead of fearing the animal, or becoming afraid to ride again, he instantly got back up and started riding as if it were nothing at all. It was then when Milan’s drive to ride horses became apparent to those around him.
In a short period, Milan has achieved significant goals in the horse riding sport. Some of these achievements include winning the first leg of the triple crown, ranking up to 2nd at the Worlds Championship Horse Show, and winning a 3rd place national title at the American Royal, the third leg of the triple crown.
Aside from all of Milan’s equestrian achievements, he created Milan Farms his sophomore year in high school. Not too many high schoolers are as focused as Milan when it comes to his passions. Milan farms focus on the organic production of poultry, eggs, and saffron. One of the significant developments that have occurred from Milan Farms was that Kordestani became the very first farmer to grow saffron hydroponically on microfiber sponges.
Milan wants each of his consumers to know that a pure, honest option of produce and how it was raised is readily available to them at all times. There are no hidden agendas or secrets when it comes to Milan Farms. The company has now grown to three separate farms all of which distribute eggs across the entire west coast. Not only eggs, but saffron is being distributed globally as well.
Kordestani’s drive has only increased in his constant need for innovation and bettering the farming industry as a whole. He has dedicated countless hours of research in hydroponic, and aquaponic systems when it comes to growing saffron. While he has seen success, there are still details to work out. Milan Farms continue to strive to achieve the perfect crop for their consumers.
