Milan Kordestani is an equestrian, a business owner, a student, and an employee.
Many 19 year olds would find it difficult to juggle all of these roles, but Milan does it with ease.
Riding horses is a passion of his and something that he has been doing since the age of 10.
When Milan first boarded a horse, he was thrown off. The horse went wild and ran away.
However, Milan went after the horse. He chased it, caught up with it, and climbed right back on it.
His father, Omid Kordestani, found this to be very impressive for a 10 year old, as many children Milan’s age would have been frightened if in this situation.
Since that encounter, Milan has grown into a champion equestrian, ranking in many competitions.
His highest rank today is 2nd place, which he was rewarded when competing in the 2016 World’s Champion Horse Show.
When Milan isn’t riding horses, much of his time is spent at the Huffington Post where he writes about politics, agriculture, and mental health.
When he isn’t writing for the Post, he is attending college in his hometown of California or working on his farm.
Kordestani started Milan Farms when he was only 16 years old. On his farm, he grows eggs, mint, and saffron.
Milan currently has three farms on which he grows eggs. These eggs are 100& organic and are shipped to customers all over the west coast.
He ships his saffron and mint worldwide, making his business international.
Although Milan believes in the traditional way of doing things, he also believes in innovation.
Because he believes so strongly in finding new ways of doing things, he has been researching how to grow saffron hydroponically.
He has seen much success in his research and experimentation but is not yet ready to begin growing 100% of his saffron hydroponically.
Milan enjoys taking the time to speak to his customers and to answer any questions they may have.
He says that being honest is the only way to do business and feels that business owners should keep no secrets from their customers.
