Farm Tours at Cornman Farms

Barn-ProfileThis past spring, Zingerman’s Cornman Farms opened its doors to the public and the response has been overwhelming! The Farm has hosted weddings, charity events, and even this year’s Camp Bacon Main Event! But Cornman Farms is more that an events space: it’s an authentic working farm. So we’ve created a suite of tours that will allow our guests to learn about our farming practices, animal husbandry philosophies, and historic significance from the folks who actually run the farm. Tours begin next week!
