MILAN KORDESTANI INVESTS IN ORGANIC FARMING

Milan Kordestani is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Milan Farms, a company that rears poultry humanely and grows saffron organically. Milan Farms was established in early 2015 with the aim of providing customers with the product that they want. Milan was born and grew up in Stanford but moved to London in 2009 when his parents divorced. He attended several schools till he graduated from Sacred Heart Preparatory High School in 2017.

Milan has been riding horses since when he was ten years old when he was thrown off a horse by a runaway horse on the riding trail. Even after being thrown off, he got back on the horse and rode it back to the camp. Milan surprised many people because few children would ride a horse that previously mistreated them. He has competed severally in horse riding competitions and has won a number of them. In 2015, Milan won the first leg of the Triple Crown and was ranked fourth at the World Championship Horse Show. He also won the third leg of the Triple Crown during the American Royal. In 2016, he obtained his highest ranking in horse riding during the World Championships Horse Show by becoming second in his age split.

Currently, Milan Farms offers 100% organic saffron, free-range eggs, and mint. The objective of the company is to provide the customer with honest information. The customer should be provided with information on how animals were reared or plants were grown. The eggs that are sold by Milan Farms are laid by free range chickens that are fed on grass and organic feed. All items that are used in handling the chicken and the eggs are organic.

Milan Farms harvests the brightest part of the saffron flower in a bid to get the highest quality. These flowers are later dried for ten days to prevent loss of smell, flavor, and color and stored in airtight jars. They are delivered to the customers in zipping locked bags as fresh as they came from the farm. Milan Farms has innovated a new method of growing saffron different from the traditional drip irrigation method. The company has invested in a hydroponic system and is still experimenting on the salinity and mineral levels that are optimal for production of highest quality saffron.
