You will still be able to find our premium Berkshire-breed pork at the Ithaca Farmers Market every weekend through December. However, all the pigs now roaming and rooting in the fields and woods are spoken for! We will start taking orders for half-pigs again in April.
Ithaca-based filmmaker Irene Case produced this short documentary about the local food scene. The Ithaca Farmers Market manager, patrons plus the owners of Kingbird Farm and Cayuta Sun Farm describe their experiences on farm and at market.
In just ten minutes of sometimes quirky and funny footage, the film explores the personal, social and economic themes of small farms and their customers at the Ithaca Farmers Market.
Cayuta Sun Farm is honored to be part of this film and truly appreciates the professionalism, quality and accuracy that Ms. Case and her crew demonstrated throughout their work.
$1 per pound discount for all pastured chicken.

Cayuta Sun Farm will be vending on most Saturdays at the Ithaca Farmers Market.
Last year the farm sold shiitakes, chicken and pork on Sundays at the Market and will continue to do so. Now the farm has been granted full membership in the market so, with few exceptions, we’ll be there on both weekend market days.
Our location in the pavilion will change week-to-week so look for our yellow sign or check the vendors list posted on the door of the market office.
