Milan Kordestani is still attending school in the San Francisco Bay area but is already a journalist for the Huffington Post, an acclaimed equestrian and organic farm owner. His determination for success can be summarized in a story from his youth.
At a young age, Milan Kordestani began receiving horse riding lessons. One of his first lessons saw him launched from his horse and hurt lying upon the ground. He sprung up from the ground, took the horse by the reins and got back up. He rode the horse back to the horse riding school when other children would’ve been terrified of the animal that just hurt them. His instructors were astonished.
It is Milan Kordestani’s a deep respect for animals that inspired him to found Milan Farms. His California-based farm raises poultry in a humane and organic way. The farm sells eggs, saffron and other herbs to the public. Milan believes that consumers will always choose the humane, transparent and pure option when given a choice. That’s why he brings his organically produced products to market in a transparent way.
His growing of saffron is a bit controversial. Milan Farms grows saffron hydroponically on microfiber sponges. This flies in the face of traditional saffron growing but the CEO and founder of the Farms like to stress that they believe in innovation. That’s why they continue to research the best hydroponic way to grow the delicate spice. The people at Milan Farms are currently working on salinity levels to produce the best saffron possible.
Milan Kordestani continued with his equestrian accomplishments after his first few lessons. He was able to win the first leg of the Triple Crown in 2015 using his own horse, CH His Supreme Reflection. He would then follow that up with fourth place at the World Championship Horse Show. He then achieved a third-place at the American Royal which is the third leg of the Triple Crown. And 2016 saw his most impressive equestrian accomplishment when he took home second place at the World Championship Horse Show in the Five Gaited Show Pleasure Division in his age group.
