Milan Kordestani’s Love Of Saffron, Horses And Writing

It is easy to get your hands on some of Milan Kordestani’s organically raised eggs. You can navigate right on over to the Milan Farms website to order up six or 12 eggs. You can even sign up for a subscription where you’ll be delivered eggs weekly or monthly. And these are some of the most wholesome eggs in the San Francisco Bay area.

That’s because Milan Farms raises its chickens humanely and organically. Milan Kordestani, the CEO and founder of the organic farm, believes that Informed consumers will always make the right choice. That’s why he endeavors to educate consumers on the wholesome nature of his products. He is banking on the fact that a consumer will leave behind the eggs produced by big business in lieu of his humanely raised products.

His farm is also producing one of the most sought-after spices on the market. Saffron is a delicate spice that is difficult to grow. There are decades of saffron growing traditions but Milan Kordestani chooses to grow his saffron hydroponically on microfiber sponges. His saffron is certainly not traditional but the young Milan Kordestani believes in innovation. And he continues to innovate with his herbs as he explores more effective hydroponic and aquaponic means of growing saffron. His team is currently exploring salinity levels for the most effective way of cultivating saffron.

Milan Kordestani is still attending school in California, but he writes for the Huffington Post, competes in world championship equestrian events and runs his own farm. The determination to become so successful at such a young age can be summed up in a childhood story.

A massive horse through a young Milan to the ground during a writing lesson. Most children would’ve been afraid of the beast that just hurt them but not Milan. He got right up back on that horse to the amazement of his instructors.

He developed deep relationships with horses which led him to compete in world championship equestrian events. He has taken home trophies from the first and third legs of the Triple Crown and placed second at the World Championships.
