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.

    Truly, could not ask for a better venue.

    Like many, we had to change our wedding plans due to COVID-19 and decided on an elopement wedding at Cornman's Farms. The entire team, especially our main contact, Olivia, were amazing to work with from start to finish, which was also great given our quick planning timeline of about five weeks. They worked with us through every aspect and made it the most seamless day possible. The space was amazing - I cannot tell you how many compliments we got from those in attendance about the farmhouse and surrounding scenery. The team at Cornman really worked with us to make the day about us and our story, while still making sure to keep our guests happy and entertained.

    How could I leave a review without talking about the food?! We had the most amazing four course meal led by chef Kieron that I'm pretty sure I will tell people about until I die.

    We could not recommend Cornman Farms enough.

    Nothing short of an absolute dream

    I'm finding it hard to summarize my experience with Zingerman's Cornman Farms into a simple, short review because of the amount of work and tireless effort that was put into my experience here. Tabitha, Kieron, Olivia, Kirsten, Rachel, and the rest of the team at Cornman Farms put absolutely everything they could into helping me plan my July 31, 2020 wedding on the farm. For the past 10 months, I have been working closely with the staff here to execute our outdoor, 85 person wedding and it has been nothing short of one of the best experiences I have ever been a part of. Zingerman's Cornman Farms is the most charming and beautiful property with so much to offer couples who choose to get married at the venue. From the beginning, our expectations were met with top-notch customer service and all-inclusive experience. I wanted to book this venue for my wedding since I came across it on a google search, but after seeing the property, the 1800s farmhouse, barn, lush fields and gardens, we were absolutely sure we weren't going to explore any other options. In the middle of our wedding planning, we were thrown a global pandemic which posed a huge problem for gathering. Tabitha and the Cornman Farms team were so gracious and prompt in replying to emails, messages, zoom calls, etc. during the entire shut down and included such an empathetic, supportive tone. We knew from the beginning of the shutdown that we were going to get married on our wedding day no matter the circumstances, but we were a million times thankful that Cornman Farms chose to stick with us and do everything in their power to host our event on their property with accommodations and safety measures in place. On the actual day of our wedding, we were greeted by several people to help, including a concierge, and farm production and execution staff. Each moment of our day was orchestrated perfectly and it is because of all the work the Cornman Farms staff does (especially behind the scenes). Our wedding looked a bit different than a traditional wedding because of the circumstances, but Cornman Farms put every effort into making it perfect that we wouldn't have changed a thing even if we could have. Our day was a beautiful, sunny, 80 degrees and ended with the most picturesque watercolor sunset. We still can't believe everything happened, and that it was real. Our guests raved about every detail and we think about our wedding every single day. Zingerman's will always have our business, we will always be thankful to Cornman Farms and the people there, and we cannot wait to come back to the property for events and anniversaries in the future. Thank you Cornman Farms for playing such a huge role in our love story!
