An old farmhouse, goats with an abundance of personality, modern French decor, and a 7-course gourmet meal. Welcome to Zingerman’s Cornman Farms.

I recently began working with The Maryn – an editorial entity with a focus on design, lifestyle, and living well. This September, their featured venue was Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, in Dexter, MI.

If you’re unfamiliar, Zingerman’s is a collection of businesses that happen to be in the business of food. More-so, it’s a brand that signifies quality, creativity, and unique concepts in the world of all things culinary.

Cornman Farms is set in the countryside, just west of Ann Arbor, MI. The Maryn’s media production team spent the day with head chef Kieron Hales, a charming Englishman, with a penchant for humor, farm-to-table cooking, and a good set of suspenders.


From a 19th century farm house, to a goat named “Bad Brad” with a taste for pants, to the world’s least aggressive hive of honey bees (which have a symbiotic relationship with the garden that supplies much of the farm’s produce), Cornman Farm’s is well worth the trip.
