​Grown in the California sun, this These flowers grow from bulbs exported from Kashmar, Iran, 3 years ago, the world's #1 grower of Saffron. They have been flourishing in California for over 3 years now.



While Milan Farms recognizes the tradition in the production and cultivation of saffron, we also believe in innovation. That is why, in addition to our use of drip irrigation, Milan Kordestani is conducting research in hydroponic and aquaponic systems with growing saffron. We have seen success in both but are still experimenting with varying salinity levels in water as well as varying minerals in the water to ensure we perfect our crop. Below are some images of the successes we have had.

My cultivation process is modeled off of a 3,500 year-old tradition.  All stems are dried on a wire mesh for 10 days to prevent loss of  flavor, smell, and color. Afterwards, all stems are placed in air tight jars to prevent any loss of quality. ​

Hydroponic Farming

I only use the brightest portion of the Saffron to ensure the highest quality. At the end of each harvest, I have multiple people test the saffron to ensure quality from each group of flowers.
