Behind our farmhouse are cool pine woods with a soft pine needle floor. 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.

NOTE: During the weekend of August 23-25, 2019, Cayuta Sun Farm will be hosting former students and guests, giving tours, offering a BBQ and more as part of Permaculture Weekend organized by the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute. Our farm is proud to be a sponsor. Expect many people and much fun. [FingerLakesPermaculture.org]
