Cayuta Sun is a small, permaculture-based farm. On pasture and under the canopy of trees, we produce pasture-raised meats, log-grown shiitake mushrooms, and a variety of sustainably produced fruits, vegetables, and woodland products. We currently offer pork, whole chickens and shiitake mushrooms  We mostly sell retail at farmers markets and at the farm by appointment.  This farm is the home of Michael Burns & Kelly Dietz who seek to build a local, regenerative economy that builds community and supports food sovereignty. Each year we commit to struggle and innovation to produce food that is healthy for our environment and ourselves. Cayuta Sun Farm also supports sustainable farming education by hosting workshops and events, especially with the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute.

Michael has such a cool farm! He was very welcoming and showed us around. It’s really beautiful to see all the wildflowers around everywhere. Michael also had excellent recommendations for coffee! The campsite is a bit far from parking, but he has a wagon for your things.

The site was very interesting with the pigs and the layout. Our tent site was secluded and quiet. The hot shower was great! Unfortunately, our schedule didn’t allow us to explore the site. Next time we will have to stay longer.

Permaculture paradise in the woods!
What an amazing stay! Michael and Kelly were truly delightful, and their property is incredibly beautiful. Lots of options for places to set up your tent, and it all feels quiet and secluded. A super fun and informative stay- especially if you’re interested in permaculture, farming, gardening, or PIGS! So many reasons why this place is terrific- we look forward to coming back!

On arriving I was greeted by Michael, and his dog, who was just returning from feeding the pigs in one of the pens. He told me a little about the farm and gave me a tour of the place. The farm was amazingly beautiful. For my camping spot I chose to camp in the opening next to the picnic table. It was very secluded, quiet and near to the composting toilet. There was also a shower with hot water in the woods that was great to use. The trails around the farm were a pleasure to walk through. And, I had some of the Bratwurst that the farm makes and it was delicious. I highly recommend this place to all,

This was such a quiet and pleasant campsite! Michael and Kelly were awesome. It was a bit of a walk from where we parked our cars, but not too bad. They provided a wagon to help us wheel everything down! I’d definitely camp here again. We were close to both Cayuga and Seneca lake, which was perfect for our weekend itinerary!
