Recently we got the chance to stop by Cornman Farms and check out this soon to be venue. If you have ever eaten at ZIngerman’s you have probably tasted something that was grown at the farm. In 2004, Chef Alex created a family garden for a way to spend time with his family, and in 2005 this family garden became Cornman Farms.
The property is located in Dexter, and it sits on 42 acres of farmland. You will be able to rent out the house on the property for private dinners, showers, or your rehearsal dinner. Your ceremony could take place in front of the white old farmhouse with a beautiful large front porch. This spot just took my breath away. There are huge trees that cover the spot with shade, so your guests can sit in comfort.
After your ceremony guests can enjoy walking around the property, through edible and English gardens, by the custom fire pit, and by their smokehouse. The smokehouse could be used for a pig roast for your rehearsal dinner, or even the dinner at your wedding. Your reception can be held in the (soon to be) newly renovated barn where on the bottom level is the bar and dinner and dancing on the top floor. If your guest list is bigger than 80 people, you have the option of putting a tent on the property.
Honestly there are so many different options for this venue that we can’t wait to help a couple plan there wedding here! Their estimated opening date for bookings is 2014. I know this place is going to be one of those venues that couples are going to fall in love with. You support a local business, and you can have everything in one place but not feel like you’re trying to cram it all in, and the property is beautiful.
