Zingerman’s Cornman Farms is an award-winning chef-led event space, wedding venue and working farm in Dexter, Michigan. The 27-acres and its venues were restored from their 1834 foundations with the most discerning guests in mind. Featuring a beautiful exhibition kitchen, chef’s garden, classic farmhouse, barn, and tent pavilion.
People often tell us there’s something about Cornman Farms that feels like home. Something warmly nostalgic. Maybe it’s our classic, lovingly restored red barn, or our picture-perfect white farmhouse, complete with porch and rocking chairs. Perhaps it’s the big maple trees, sunflowers or sweeping lawn. Maybe it’s the smell of fresh-baked bread pudding wafting out of our farmhouse kitchen, or the love and care shown by each member of our team. What matters most is this: you’ll feel right at home here. What could be more important on your most special days?
After all, weddings and other momentous occasions are about family—the one you’re born into; the one you join by marriage; the one you create for yourself. And then there’s your Cornman Farms family. Time and time again, we hear from people who celebrate with us that we come to feel like an extension of their family—and to us, there’s no greater compliment. That’s exactly what Chef Kieron Hales set out to create when he reimagined this historic property as an event venue with an emphasis on excellent food. The way we see it, nothing brings a family, a team, or a community together like good food, prepared with love. Much like the kitchen is the heart of any home, ours is the heart and soul of Cornman Farms.
Nothing makes us happier than whipping up a batch of pancakes for little flower girls or seeing a bride drift into the kitchen the morning of her big day or having a rehearsal dinner culminate with everyone congregating in the kitchen. When our kitchen is somewhere people want to be, we know we’re doing something very right.
We’re experts at planning and hosting events of all kinds—especially if they involve gathering around fantastic, farm-to-table food. Our team will work with you to create a custom experience that’s perfectly suited to our farmhouse, barn, tent, or grounds. Our idyllic 27-acre farm is just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor, but somehow feels worlds away (that’s another one we hear all the time).
