Milan Kordestani has already accomplished so many things in his short lifetime that it is hard to believe he is a college student. Milan has two main passions at the moment: Equestrian events and Milan Farms. The love of horses came far before his passion for farming. Mr. Kordestani was trail riding as a young child and thrown from the horse. What would have traumatized many children, made Milan more determined to become a champion.
Mr. Kordestani began training in earnest. By the time he was 15, Milan won the first race of the Triple Crown event. Later that same year, Milan placed fourth in the World Championship Horse Show. Mr. Kordestani also has a third place title in the American Royal event and a second place title in the World Championship Horse Show’s Five Gated Show Pleasure Division. This is his highest title to date.
Along with his love of horses, Milan showed a love of farming as a teenager. Thus in his sophmore year of high school, Mr. Kordestani started Milan Farms, a 100% organic farm. Milan started his first farm with one goal in mind: to be truly transparent to the public in what the farm produces and how the farm is run on a day to day basis. The Milan Farms brand has become a trademarked company and grew into three farms across the West Coast and Colorado. Milan Farms specializes in mint, eggs, and saffron. The farm delivers saffron to places across the globe and was the first farm to grow saffron on microfiber sponges.
Milan is now a college student living in the San Francisco bay area. When he can, Milan also writes for the Huffington Post and holds the position of CEO in the Milan Farms business. To read more about Milan Kordestani, please click here.
