Milan Kordestani was raised in Stanford, California and went to Phillips Brooks Elementary school. After his parents divorced, he moved to London where he attended Eaton Square School. Finally, in 2010 Kordestani relocated to the Bay Area where he graduated from Sacred Heart Preparatory in Atherton.
Kordestani became fond of riding horses at ten years old, after the experience of being thrown off of a horse while trail riding. He braved the situation and rode the horse back to camp directly after being thrown off of it. This showed a sense of courage that most other children would not have exhibited in such a situation. Shortly after, he began excelling in the sport. Betts Coup of The National Horseman noted that he had natural form and a competitive dedication that would drive him to achieve major goals. Kordestani began by training with lesson horses and quickly made the jump to competing with world champion horses. He proved his skill in 2015 by winning the first leg of the triple crown.
Kordestani founded Milan Farms during his sophomore year of high school. He created this company with the goal of producing poultry, eggs, and saffron through a network of farms across the United States. Milan Farms made Kordestani the first farmer to grow saffron hydroponically on microfiber sponges. Milan Farms was trademarked in 2016 and has grown to encompass three farm locations where they distribute eggs across the west coast and saffron internationally. As Kordestani moves forward he is further researching ways to innovate. Although he understands the importance in traditional irrigation, he has been studying hydroponic and aquaponic systems that would allow him to move forward in his ventures.
