Farm Feasts at Cornman Farms

Dinner at the Farm


You can see it all in your mind. The beautifully restored farmhouse and barn in the verdant setting of a traditional working farm. The classic cocktails and wine. The skilled chef and kitchen staff. The vibrant courses made from fresh produce picked mere hours earlier in the fields a few hundred feet away.

Sound like a slice of heaven to you? You’re in luck. Zingerman’s Cornman Farms is celebrating our inaugural event season with a tantalizing schedule of farm dinners. As a guest at our farm dinners, you’ll have to opportunity to enjoy the farm’s produce as it comes into full ripe readiness throughout the summer and autumn. Each dinner will follow the cycle of the crop season, spotlighting the freshest farm ingredients in harvest at that time.

If you want an experience that truly represents the very essence of the “farm-to-table” ideal, these dinners are for you!

Inaugural Cornman Farms Dinner

Friday, August 15, 6:00 pm
We’ll start off with a champagne cocktail hour and then enjoy a traditional farm meal just a few yards from where we’re growing the crops and raising the animals. Belly up to our Tomato Bar and taste the unique flavors in our many heirloom varietals. Dig in to our traditional potato latkes made from potatoes we’ll dig up that day. Savor ham from Niman Ranch hogs smoked in our historic smokehouse just a few feet from the barn. Top it all off with just-picked-blueberry pie for dessert. Roadhouse Chef Alex Young and Cornman Farms Managing Partner Kieron Hales will tell the story of the farm at this very first of many family-style dinners on our farm.

You Pick Sunday Supper

Sunday, September 21, 4:00 pm
We’ll start the event with a hayride out to the fields where we’ll meet Farm Manager Mark Baerwolf to learn the history of Cornman Farms and harvest the food for the evening. Then we’ll head back to the barn for a cocktail hour while Chef prepares an unforgettable meal that highlights the fantastic flavors of the summer. On the eve of the autumnal equinox, I can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to summer than to share the fruits of the field with family and friends.
