Milan Kordestani: From Farmer to Equestrian

Milan Kordestani might only be eighteen years old, but he already has quite the resume. Kordestani is the CEO and founder of Milan Farms. As if the farm doesn’t keep him busy enough, he is also a college student, a writer for the Huffington Post and is a competing equestrian.


Kordestani began riding horses when he was ten years old and it didn’t take him long to catch on to the sport. He started out taking riding lessons in Atherton, but only did this for a short number of years before he moved on to competing at high levels. His skill level was proved in 2015 when he won the first leg of the triple crown. Following that big win, he won fourth place at the Worlds Championship Horse Show. A short year later, in 2016, Mian Kordestani became number two in the Five Gaited Show Pleasure Division of the Worlds Championship Horse show.


Beyond his success as an equestrian, in 2015, as a sophomore in high school, Milan Kordestani founded Mlian Farms. Milan Farms prides itself on being open, honest, and transparent when it comes to how they raise their animals and plants. The company produces high quality, organic, eggs, mint, and saffron at a number of farms across the West Coast. Their eggs are distributed across the West Coast and the saffron is distributed worldwide.


The eggs produced at Milan Farms are from grass fed, free range chickens. Additionally, the chickens are fed organic, no soy, and no corn feed, as well as fresh, organic vegetables. Not only are their eggs organic, but so are the cartons the eggs are sold in are also organic. When it comes to saffron, only the brightest portion of the plant is used, this ensures a high-quality product. When cultivating the plant, the stems are dried for 10 days, this not only ensures quality, but also prevents the loss of flavor. When a person orders saffron, it is shipped directly to their home in zip-lock bags. If one thing is sure, Milan Farms produces quality products that are sure to be enjoyed.
