My friends and I had such an amazing time at Amy and Bill’s beautiful farm. They introduced us to the farm animals and showed us around their place, which was so fun to witness especially since we’re all from cities and don’t get to experience real animals / plants / nature most of the time. The campsite is very secluded and everything you need is already there. There’s a grill, fire pit, chairs, tables, a NICE and CLEAN bathroom, a shower, a water hose, blankets, towels, literally everything you would need is already set up and organized for you. COVID-19 measures are also in place, which made us feel even more comfortable. Amy and Bill are living a true Stardew Valley life and it’s so inspirational to see what they’ve done with their farm. Definitely will come back! 10/10

Very pleasant stay! Amy and Bill were both super friendly in showing us all around the farm. They recommended places to eat and hike, and always responded to any questions we had quickly! We got so used to walking by the cows that it was hard to say goodbye. Would definitely recommend! :)

Absolutely loved staying at Finnegan's Farm. The property was beautiful and Bill and Amy were such great, welcoming hosts. Amy took us on a tour of the grounds and introduced us to all of their wonderful animals and Bill was really great to talk to. Overall, had the best experience.

My husband and I had a great time on Finnegan's Farm. The property and general area are beautful: close to farms, forests, swimming holes, and restaurants. We enjoyed the beautiful frog songs in the evening, a surprise of fresh strawberries from Amy's garden, and a lovely tour of their animals. For those unaccustomed to yurting, it's much like tent camping, so be sure you dress for the weather! Amy and Bill had plenty of blankets for the cool evenings. Many thanks, Amy & Bill. Hope we can return with our kids someday.

We went to finnegans farm for a weekend of camping. We have been actively camping and going to different camp sites in NJ and this was a new adventure that we weren't expecting. Most of our camps have been at state run camp sites where you would be lucky to have running water or a bathroom. That's ok because that is part of the fun.

We were really surprised by the farm. Billy and Amy are great hosts and the farm was fantastic. There are animals that my children could watch, and feed! She got to go in the morning with Amy to feed them and in the evening round them up. Her greatest memory was holding one of the geese. She said it was like holding a pillow. Lol

Let me tell you, Billy and Amy were fantastic hosts. We arrived really late because I had to work that day, but Bill welcomed us and showed everything we needed. The Yurt was like an outdoor hotel room. It was still camping but was not overly hard on us. There was running water, outdoor furniture to sit on, a fire pit and an outdoor shower for the time we needed it. The farm was the best part. Everything is organically grown, and OMG.. Bill's flowers... I purchased bunches and bunches of them for my flower shop. So fresh and so beautiful.
We will definitely go back!!!

Amy and Bill are very welcoming and considerate. The yurt and camp site are very very clean. They have towels and flashlights prepared in the yurt.

We got a bit late on Friday night and Bill stood in the chilly weather and waited for us to give us a tour. Really appreciate that. The farm have cute animals, pony, white ducks, and goats! We really enjoyed our stay.

We couldn't recommend Finnegan Farm, West enough! Amy and Bill have created a sweet little oasis that is beautiful and welcoming. The site is pristine with a lovely fire pit, green egg grill, composting toilet, super comfortable bed, and access to an beautiful outdoor shower with warm water. We had such a relaxing time. Our 2.5 year old loved having access to open space and visiting the animals. Amy and Bill were the perfect hosts. We can't wait to come back and look forward to the other additions they have in the works!
