Milan Kordestani founded Milan Farms in San Francisco in 2015. Milan Farms was trademarked in 2016 as humane and organic, and has since grown to consist of three poultry farms. They use aquaponic, hydroponic, and drip irrigation with growing saffron.
Milan was born in Stanford, California, and went to Phillips Brooks Elementary School. His parents got divorced in 2009 before his family moved to London, England, where he graduated from Eaton Square School. In 2017, he moved back to San Francisco and graduated from Sacred Heart Preparatory in Atherton.
He was 10 when he started riding horses. After falling off once, he got right back on and rode back to camp. The experience taught him hard work and inspired him to ride world-class horses, eventually leading him to win blue ribbons. After taking riding lessons in Atherton, he went on to compete at high levels. He was first place in the triple crown’s first leg, and fourth place at the Worlds Championship Horse Show. At the American Royal, he was third place in the third leg of the triple crown. He managed to come in second in the Five Gaited Show Pleasure at the World Championship Horse Show in 2016.
He started Milan Farms while he was a sophomore in high school. Kordestani was the first saffron farmer to grow spices hydroponically on microfiber sponges. He is also a writer for the Huffington Post.
Milan Farms offers free range/organic eggs, mint, and saffron. They raise animals with transparency and grow plants with organic options only. Kordestani wants the consumer to always have an honest option available. Their eggs are sold all across the west coast, but their saffron is sold all over the world. They experiment with water salinity levels and different minerals in order to provide the best crop.
