Milan Kordestani grew up in Stanford, California and graduated from High School in the Bay Area in California. At the young age of 10, he began to ride horses and stuck with it even when he was thrown off of a horse. He has gone on to compete in horse races and other events, and many have called his riding form a natural one. He won the first leg of the triple crown in 2015 while riding his horse Supreme Reflection and went on to pick up a fourth place spot while competing at the Worlds Championship Horse Show. During 2016, he he earned a 2nd place showing at the Worlds Championship Horse Show, which was his highest ranking at the time.
In his sophomore year of high school, Milan Kordestani created Milan Farms where he would begin his focus on growing saffron and providing eggs and poultry. He is the first person to ever grow saffron on microfiber sponges using a hydroponic system. He believes that customers know what they want and that farmers should be offering exactly what that is. He also feels that there should be no secrets related to the way that food is grown or raised, and this business model has helped his company to rapidly expand all over the United States and into markets overseas, as well.
Milan Kordestani is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Milan Farms. He is also a student and a blogger who has written for the HuffPost. He created Milan Farms in 2015 with a mission of growing saffron 100% organically and raising poultry in a humane way using an organic system. Today, Milan Farms operates on a model of transparency, offering the purest of products, and only using organic methods. Kordestani believes this is the right way to produce food of any kind, and he has expanded his model into other locations. The saffron grown at Milani Farms is sold all over the world, and Kordestani hopes to be able to expand his operations even further with the use of hydroponic and aquaponic systems that distribute nutrients to the plants.
