Experience an Active Lifestyle
At Kimball Farms, we pride ourselves on raising the standards of retirement living. We offer opportunities for cultural, social, physical and spiritual enrichment, encouraging residents to pursue personal interests.
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.
