After consuming way too much food, our time on the farm ended with a tour of the beautiful property. The first thing you notice when stepping outside is the sprawling fields and large, blossoming, gardens. Each section of the property feels intentional and perfectly manicured, while still remaining comfortable and inviting. There’s a large, stark white, tent pavilion in order to accommodate guests who marry on the property and choose to hold a wedding reception, or any outdoor event.
The vegetable gardens are green, vibrant, and full of life, but they’re not the only life you’ll find on the farm. Sitting a little further back on the property is an enclosure that has slatted sides, a tin roof, and a homemade arch that resembles a crown. In the middle is a small beehive, called a Flow Hive.
Flow Hive is a method of beekeeping that is less stressful on the bees – as well as the beekeeper. The state-of-the-art beehive uses an unconventional and innovative method of honey harvesting that doesn’t disturb the bees nor put them in danger of being crushed during extraction. It’s just one more example of how Zingerman’s Cornman Farm’s truly cares for, and respects, what nature has provided.
The farm offers an event space unlike any other in the area, with a staff of people who truly care about the working farmland and the amount of care it requires, as well as each guest who visits – this 42-acre property is extraordinary. Beautifully restored, Zingerman’s Cornman Farms would be the perfect venue for your next event, wedding, or private party. It was truly hard to leave the beautiful sprawling property, but I know I’ll be back.
