Milan Kordestani And His Hydroponic Saffron

Milan Kordestani believes in organic produce. He also believes in the humane treatment of farm animals. And this deep respect for animals may have come from his youth when he first started receiving riding lessons.

A massive horse bucked the young journalist right off his back. Kordestani fell to the ground and experienced some minor injuries before he stood right back up. He hopped right back on that horse and rode it back to the barn confidently. Instructors at the horse riding academy were absolutely blown away by this determination.

Perhaps it is his synergistic relationship with animals that drove the young Milan Kordestani to found his organic farm. Milan Farms specializes in raising chickens as humanely as possible. He believes that you can really taste the difference in their eggs which he has taken to market along with saffron and herbs.

The reason for the organic and humane treatment of his chickens may be commercial. He has a deep belief that most consumers will choose the humane option if given a choice. He endeavors to educate consumers on the organic possibilities of all farm products, but he is starting with eggs.

Saffron is one of the most delicate spices on earth. It is difficult to grow and its cultivation is rooted in tradition. But Kordestani is growing saffron hydroponically at his farm. He respects the tradition but believes in innovation. He and his team are currently working on salinity levels to produce the most flavorful saffron possible. Milan Farms also produces a variety of hydroponically grown herbs alongside its eggs and saffron.

Milan Kordestani is currently a writer for the Huffington Post. He is also currently attending school in Northern California where he was born. His parents divorced and he moved to London in his formative years only to return to San Francisco to graduate from high school.

He has many equestrian accomplishments. Milan Kordestani has earned medals in both the first and third legs of the Triple Crown. He likes to ride his own horse, CH His Supreme Reflection, and competes in the Five Gaited Show Pleasure DivisionIn his age group.
