Zingerman’s is nearing completion of a new barn on their property, ‘Cornman Farms’, just west of downtown Dexter on Island Lake Road. Started by Zingerman’s Roadhouse chef and managing partner Alex Young, Cornman Farms is an 8-acre property that raises cows, sheep, pigs, goats and chickens, providing a source for meat, dairy and vegetables to Zingerman’s. The new barn, which is dedicated to farm-related education and entertainment, will feature miniature production gardens, a goat farm and milking parlor. The Greek revival house on the property will be renovated to provide a commercial kitchen for classes. Events are being booked for May of 2014—farm dinners that are open to the public will start in June of 2014. Cornman Farms, 8540 Island Lake Rd., Dexter. 734-619-8100. cornmanfarms.com
