Cornman Farms is located on 42 acres of farmland in Dexter, MI, growing over 50 varieties of more then 9 different vegetables, including heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, squash and beans. Established in 2005, 27 acres of the property was purchased in June of 2012, including a beautiful 1854 farmhouse and a historically renovated barn (in progress). Chef Alex Young is restoring the land and buildings to its original charm and architecture with plans to open the farm for events in May of 2014.
A sneak peak at our vision for the property:
On the property, away from the main road, sits an 1854 Greek revival farmhouse with a beautiful front porch, second floor balcony and large windows, perfect for a wedding ceremony, rehearsal dinner, graduation or other event. Mature, tall trees frame the front of the house, providing shade and breeze for guests. Walk through the fruit tree lined walkways of the Edible Gardens at the front of the property, past Cornman Farms’ vegetables and our custom fire pit and smokehouse, to the historically renovated 1888 barn. Entering on the ground floor, the newly built bar provides a great space for a cocktail hour or extra seating. The main floor of the barn is used for dining, mingling, or to hold a dance floor and live band. For larger parties, there is flat land for a tent, which borders the edge of the Edible Gardens, providing a picturesque background for dinner and photographs.
Cornman Farms is booking now, hosting its first events in May of 2014. Please contact cornmaneventszingermanscom to inquire about dates, pricing and catering.
