The Farm


Cayuta Sun is a small, permaculture-based farm. On pasture and under the canopy of trees, we aim to produce 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 and shiitake mushrooms  We mostly sell retail at farmers markets and at the farm by appointment. 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.
