Cayuta Sun is a small, permaculture-based farm. On pasture and under the canopy of trees, we aim to produce and sell directly to consumers pasture-raised meats, log-grown shiitake mushrooms, and a variety of sustainably produced fruits, vegetables, and woodland products.
We currently offer pork and whole chickens. Meat can be purchased retail or in a six-month CSA. Purchases can be made online and picked-up in Ithaca or delivered to Ithaca and the nearby towns of Enfield, Newfield, Hector, and Catharine. We have mostly been selling our shiitake mushrooms wholesale. Sign up to our mailing list to stay informed of new offerings.
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.
