About Zingerman's Cornman Farms

Zingerman's Cornman Farms is a multi-award winning wedding venue, culinary destination and picturesque farm nestled in the countryside outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. With sprawling fields, lush gardens and historic buildings set on 27 acres of pastoral beauty, our estate offers a warm and inspiring atmosphere for celebrations of all kinds.

Our Spaces
Whether the wedding of your dreams is indoor or outdoor, intimate or grand, our estate has stunning spaces that will provide the perfect backdrop to your celebrations.

  • The Farmhouse: Our stunning Greek Revival Farmhouse, built in 1834, was redesigned to create the perfect suite of rooms for the modern wedding. The Farmhouse is a warmly welcoming home away from home for your big day. Offering a spacious, serene space with all of the essentail elements for you and your wedding party to get ready, the upper level features a bridal suite, lounge area, hair and makeup room and full bathroom. The lower level includes our exhibition kitchen, library with wood-burning fireplace, two bathrooms, and adjoining dining and living rooms to welcome your family and wedding party throughout the day.
  • The Red Barn: An American icon, elevated. Our lovingly restored and modernized Red Barn, built in 1837, featured a stunning gabled roof. Nestled into the landscaped grounds, the Red Barn exudes rustic elegance. Features include heating and air-conditioning, wood-burning fireplaces, a built-in bar, elevator and restrooms. The lounge, located on the lower level, features leather seating, a double bar, men's and women's restrooms, fireplace and an outdoor patio. The rustic atmosphere provides an ideal space for cocktail hour, dessert and photos, as well as a getting ready area for the groom and groomsmen. The upper level loft features beautiful high ceilings with a gabled roof and large open area for dancing. This space also serves as your alternative ceremony location in inclement weather.
  • The Tent Pavilion: Every Spring we raise our gorgeous, white peak pole Tent Pavilion, adding an immediate sense of grandeur to the property. Nestled into our grounds, the tent features parquet flooring, ambient lighting, and optional windowed sides for an al fresco feel for your reception dinner and toasts.

Services Offered
Our venues offer both bespoke and all-inclusive wedding packages for 2 to 300 guests, always providing exceptional service to the couples hosting their celebrations and ensuring they have everything they need to relax and enjoy their special day. To make each couples’ vision a reality, our professional team of event producers will work closely alongside the couples throughout the planning process.

Catering
In addition to in-house farm-to-table catering for up to 135 guests, our venue works closely with three catering partners: Zingerman’s Roadhouse, Zingerman’s Catering and Events, and Forte Belanger. Our in-house catering team is led by Cornman Farms' executive chef and co-owner, Kieron Hales. Chef Kieron has traveled the globe having lived and cooked in 27 different countries. His posts have included the three star Paul Bocuse in France and Dal Pescatore in Italy, as well as cooking for the British Royal family and three U.S. Presidents.

Location
Just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor, Cornman Farms provides the beauty of the countryside that couples and guests can enjoy as a retreat from the toll of busy schedules. There are plenty of lodging options and local gems for guests to see just ten miles away, and the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is only 36 miles away, making traveling doable for all out-of-town loved ones.

    Beautiful - Could not have a better venue during Covid!

    Cornman farms is stunning, which is what made me initially fall in love with it! I could not have picked a better venue to work with during Covid! They were so responsive and helpful! They took care of a lot of the details and did a beautiful job!

    Wish I could give them more than 5 stars

    Kirsten, Olivia, Rachel, Tabitha and the whole Cornman team made our wedding hands down the most magical day of our lives, and this was a Covid wedding, so you know I mean business when I say that.
    Leading up to the wedding they handled the upheavals of Covid with so much grace, support and flexibility during an incredibly tumultuous time. When it came to the actual wedding day, which was supposed to be outside, it rained, snowed, hailed, and we had ridiculously cold winds. There was no way we could still hold the reception outdoors. They managed to arrange our 30 guests safely inside, spread throughout the various buildings on the grounds. They took those changes and made it seem effortless so I was able to enjoy the experience of my wedding knowing that they were taking care of everything, and that my guests and the staff would be safe. I can not stress how much I appreciate the whole team for making our day as magical as possible.
    We originally chose Cornman not just for the food and the STUNNING location, but also because they make the process so easy with their incredible in-house vendors. The flowers were perfect, the photographer was amazing and captured our wedding beautifully, the food was beyond delicious, and they connected us with a fantastic videographer so we could stream our wedding to our loved ones. 

    You get to enjoy everything when you have your wedding at Zingerman's Cornman Farms; magic, ease, beauty, joy, AND safety.
