Our Story

intimate wedding venue dexter michiganZingerman’s Cornman Farms is a historic, multi-award winning event space, wedding venue and working farm in Dexter, Michigan. The 42 acre farm and its venues were restored from their 1834 foundations with the most discerning guests in mind. Featuring a beautiful exhibition kitchen, chef’s garden, a classic farmhouse, four-season barn and a stunning tent pavilion, guests can enjoy the beauty of the countryside just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor.

The full-service venue is led by Managing Partners Tabitha Mason and Kieron Hales. Kieron Hales, Executive Chef, hails from England and began cooking in Michelin star kitchens at the age of 13. He has since lived and cooked in 27 different countries for some of the world’s top restaurants. His culinary style has a European influence with a focus on simple dishes that evoke a sense of nostalgia. This aligns well with his menus, which feature high quality ingredients and local, seasonal produce from our chef’s garden as well as the area’s neighboring farms.
