We’re raising the standards of retirement living.

At Kimball Farms, we know you value your independence, and our lifestyle provides opportunities every day for cultural, physical, and spiritual enrichment, as well as plenty of time to pursue your personal interests.

Our team is proud to manage all of the daily tasks that make it easy for you to live your best life. From crafting chef-prepared meals to facilitating a wide variety of programming, we strive to make each day more enjoyable than the last.


Our dining program is as flexible and fulfilling as our meals are delicious and nourishing. Independent living residents enjoy a daily choice of lunch or dinner, joining friends for lunch or dinner in our restaurant, relaxing with a lighter bite in the Pleasant Pheasant Pub, or grabbing a meal to go.

Our lounge provides overflow seating for the Pub and is a popular gathering spot on Friendly Fridays. We also have a private dining room with catering services available.

For special events and celebrations, our chefs pull out all the stops with elegant buffets featuring fruit and cheese spreads, seafood bars, catering stations, and decadent dessert selections. From our summertime Lobsterfest to festive holiday meals to a Chinese New Year buffet, our chefs create memorable dining experiences that bring the community together.

Activities for an Independent Lifestyle

Our location in the heart of the Berkshires provides a unique setting filled with local cultural attractions. We are just one mile from the center of town, and only two miles from Tanglewood. Almost anything can be delivered, and transportation is available to local events, volunteering, dining out and shopping.

Pursue a favorite hobby, develop lifelong interests, or try your hand at something new. Whatever your passion, we most likely have a group for that. And if we don’t, we’ll help you start one. To learn more about activities at Kimball Farms, download a sample calendar of events.
