Behind our farmhouse are cool pine woods with a soft pine needle floor. [youtu.be/jFSVHplniJ0] This deeply shaded area is used for camping by our students, apprentices, family and friends. We invite you to set up camp among us. 

There are many sites for tents but we only accept one to two HipCamp guests per night and only one tent at this location. Look for our additional listing ("Secluded Site on Permaculture Farm") for our other campsite that can accomodate up to eight campers and three tents.

Cayuta Sun Farm produces gourmet quality pork and poultry through heritage breed hogs and birds integrated into a forest farm system. We invite you to camp in our woods and be a guest on our farm. We love hosting visitors and showing how we raise healthy, delicious food.

Near the farmhouse are a friendly dog and cat, roaming chickens, fresh water, a composting toilet, and the rustic outdoor shower with a few minutes of hot water.

Within twenty miles of Cayuta Sun Farm are wineries, hiking trails, the cities of Ithaca and Watkins Glen, plus all the attractions found in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. We are 12 miles from the Grassroots Festival of Music, 14 miles from Watkins Glen Speedway, and 17 (paved) miles from Ithaca. Within just a few miles is the Finger Lakes Trail, Connecticut Hill Wildlife Area and Cayuta Lake. Walk down our dead end dirt road and you will find a footbridge overlooking the glorious Cayuta Inlet Swamp.

Learn more about the farm at our website: CayutaSun.Farm.

My friend and I decided to try Hipcamp for the first time and were not disappointed! We had a great time exploring the farm and woodlands—there was always something interesting to look at. There were lots of campsite options but we chose a grassy patch by the edge of the woods, which was near the composting toilet and had a fire pit and a great view of the stars. We did have to carry our things from the car to the campsite (as expected) so pack light! Totally recommend if you want to enjoy nature and some peace and quiet.

Between the soft, pine needle forest floor, the peaceful, serene woods and the flexible welcoming of our hosts, this was the ideal camping stay. We were able to purchase wood right from the hosts, access to clean water and use a hot shower. Though, my son's favorite part was sprinkling sawdust into the composting toilet, I quite enjoyed the quiet walk from the car to the dense pine woods where we setup our tent. We look forward to coming back soon, and urge any campers coming here to take the time for a tour!

Staying with Michael was a memorable and amazing experience. When we arrived, he and his beautiful dog showed us around the farm and campsites, and taught us a bit about permaculture. We stayed just one night in the secluded campsite, and wish we could’ve stayed longer. Exploring the classroom, woods, and hanging out with the pig herd was a blast, and we were lucky enough to see some two day-old piglets. After trying the farm’s kielbasa and Italian sausage, we are also sure to be paying Michael a visit at the Ithaca farmer’s market for more of his delicious meats. Thank you so much for the great memories!

After a long day of motorcycle travel got in after dark, he was waiting on me and showed where to pitch my tent. Set up camp and fell asleep listening to the night noises to be awakened by the chickens in the morning. Had a nice chat in morning also, a delightfully nice place,plan on returning in fall!

Staying with litters of pigs reminds the camper of a different sort of life: what if we cared for this earth instead of destroying it? What if we loved animals like they were comrades on this globe instead of creatures to extract resources out of? Michael's love for nature and his pigs made us have a remarkable stay. We send nothing but gratitude his direction and thank him for his hospitality.

This is my favorite campsite on Hipcamp and I would recommend it to anyone. This was my second year staying on Michael's Permaculture Farmstead and I love it even more this time. My favorite part of staying at this location is going on the guided tour of the farm. On the tour you get to see the pigs, the fields and how everything is interconnected. The farm also has an outdoor shower, sink and other great features to make your stay on the farm easy and amazing.
