Introduction to Permaculture Presentation

Cayuta Sun Farm is proud to be a sponsor of the Permaculture Tour Weekend’s activities and we’re looking forward to hosting visitors. Our site has promoted permaculture for over a decade through community education events, including the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute’s courses.

Spend the weekend on a small forest farm.

We would like to support this celebration of our permaculture community and welcome out-of-town visitors. Rustic camping sites are open for reservations. A simple low-pressure water supply, hot shower, and composting toilets will be available. You will need to supply your own tent.


Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute alumni may stay for free.

Permaculture Weekend travelers are also welcome to book a campsite through If HipCamp reservations are sold out, please contact directly via email <>. There may still be more camping space for this special occasion.

Enjoy pork grown in our woods .

Cayuta Sun Farm is proud of our pastured poultry and pork and would like you to taste why. Upon arriving for the Sunday tour, make an order for our pork sausage meal. Better yet: Preorder! Last year we sold out quickly. Use this online form to buy in advance and be sure to enjoy a woodland-raised, heritage breed, pork lunch.

Enjoy your freshly grilled sausage and salad at a picnic table in the cool shade of our shiitake mushroom yard. We begin grilling at 11 a.m. Cold non-alcoholic drinks will also be sold.

Bring home our pork and poultry

You can make a deposit to reserve packages from a menu of meats we offer online for pickup on August 25th, 2019. If you don’t find what you are looking for online, ask us when you visit. We’ll have frozen pork and chicken for sale at the farm. Bring a cooler. We accept credit cards.


Meet the farmer.

Sunday’s guided tours will be conducted in a continuous loop from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Join in at anytime but please register with your likely arrival time at the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute’s site. Led by Michael Burns, the presentation will highlight the development of a permaculture-inspired farmstead that has in recent years become a small woodland farm. Highlights include the octagonal classroom built of black locust logs with a reciprocal rafter roof, chickens and pigs raised on grass and under the canopy of trees, plus off-grid energy systems.

Michael will offer a short “Introduction to Permaculture” presentation at 9 a.m. Please register in advance.


Donate to the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute.

A decade’s worth of permaculture students, teachers, and practitioners have passed through Cayuta Sun Farm working, learning, and connecting with others. We feel lucky to be part of it all, are proud of our local permaculture scene, and look forward to sharing the promise of permaculture and ecological design with all our guests this weekend. Please remember that your donations this weekend support the work of the Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute which has been a keystone organization building the local and regional permaculture movement.
