We have been entertaining guests in the Berkshires since 1977. That is when we opened our first restaurant in Great Barrington. Since that time, we have served hundreds of thousands of guests. We have been successfully reviewed by the New York Times, Boston Globe, Newsday and many other respected papers. We are currently recommended by Zagat, Frommer’s Travel Guide, AAA and most recently included in Bon Appetite’s 50th Anniversary Issue (October 2006).

Our 6,000 square foot green building was completed in August, 2007 with solar panels, state-of-the-art heating and cooling systems, compact fluorescent lighting, recycled materials, and other energy efficient features. The large, open space allows full flexibility, so we can host parties as small as 30 and as large as 200. Two fireplaces complement the simple, yet tastefully designed interior. Use our new home in the Berkshires as your own home for your invited guests. Decades of hospitality experience, a passion for food and entertaining, and a beautiful new banquet facility in the Berkshires with adjacent lodging make us an excellent consideration for your next function.

We use the finest local ingredients whenever possible. Our chef, Odille Carpenter, regularly updates the menu to reflect the bounty of the changing seasons. With an assortment of appetizers and entrees, we are certain there is something for everyone to enjoy year-round.

Our banquet facility has a 10' by 10' projection screen and a 4000 lumen video / data projector, wireless microphone system and high speed wireless and wired internet. Any additional required business services can be provided.

We will operate within your budget. Our menu design and selection are exciting and flexible. Members of our staff have been serving the Southern Berkshires for over 30 years. Plan your next party or business in our new facility and we will work with you to insure its success. Read less

From the moment we toured Crissey Farm, we knew that it was the place for us. We loved the beautiful space with the warm, open room and the large stone fireplace! Gary and Chelsea helped us every step of the way and exceeded our expectations. They were more than happy to work with us, even when trying to accommodate family members with special requirements. The night of the rehearsal and the day of the wedding, we were never alone and always had someone there to make sure everything ran smoothly and that everyone knew where they were supposed to be during the night. Even when we had one mishap where my bustle ripped, Chelsea was immediately there making sure it was taken care of so I wouldn’t miss anything. Everyone who works there was extremely accommodating and patiently listened to every idea we had and worked to make sure that everything we imagined could be realized. We received many comments from family and friends saying how much they loved the space and especially how much they loved the food! The prime rib was easily our favorite! The staff at Crissey Farm took away many of our worries and helped make sure that our wedding night was everything we hoped for. We would recommend Crissey Farm without hesitation to any of our friends!

I was married at Crissey Farm last Saturday. It was the first and last place my now husband and I looked at. The first meeting with Gary was so easy! He showed us around his beautiful location, listened carefully to everything we had to say and came back with a vision that was exactly what we had been picturing. We sampler some beer and had some cheesecake and were sold. Some people thought we were crazy for not looking anywhere else but after the wedding was over every one of our guests realized what we had seen in the place right out of the gate. Gary and Chelsea are an amazing team. They listened to everything we had to say from the beginning and made absolutely sure that our wedding was everything we had hoped it would be. And that it was. Chelsea handled a potential sticky situation later in the night with professionalism and class - so much so that I didn't even find out anything "happened" until the next day!!! The food....well I had to get a photo with the angel of the kitchen! Our wedding was at 4:30 and when I dropped items off at the reception hall at 8 AM she was there. When I picked up my last center piece to leave at 11 PM....she was there. Not only does she know what she is doing and cook amazing food but she cooks as if she's cooking for her own family. From the appetizers to the dessert cart everything was perfect. Thank you to everyone at Crissey Farm AND the Barrington Brewery for being so kind, professional and open minded throughout the planning and execution of our big day. It was absolutely perfect and would, without hesitation, recommend this venue to ANYONE. We traveled 3 hours to get married there but I would have traveled more if I had to! :)

If you are looking for a venue in the Berkshires with beautiful mountain views surrounding you, if you want to be treated like you are the most important wedding party they have ever worked with, and if you want your friends to be calling you after the wedding to tell you that they've never had better food at a wedding, then Crissey Farm is for you. From the first meeting with Gary, through all the long distance planning with Chelsea, until the last minute of the reception, we were provided with excellent customer service. What can I say about Chef Odille Carpenter - well, you won't find a better chef anywhere. The appetizers were amazing (we chose the antipasto platter and regional cheese display for our stationery apps - phenomenal. Passed appetizers of crab cakes were among the best I've ever tasted and the bruschetta was excellent). Everything was made from the freshest of ingredients. We chose the buffet option and that was also excellent. Our daughter did not want a traditional wedding cake so we opted for the dessert cart - all made by the chef. It was a beautiful evening and some of our guests were outside enjoying the evening. That didn't last long once the desserts were wheeled out. I have never seen a line form for desserts before. This chef, as I told Crissey Farm, is truly a pearl without price. Every single staff member we encountered was pleasant and extremely helpful. If you choose Crissey Farm, you will not be disappointed.

From the beginning we were in excellent hands. Gary, Chelsea, and the rest of the staff were helpful, knowledgable, and so easy to work with! They made the entire wedding planning process very easy for me as a bride (planning the wedding from TN) and made me feel comfortable from day one. I don't even know where to begin- they were so incredible!

Our entire day- ceremony and reception- were at Crissey Farm, which I really recommend. It made the whole day very easy and was also nice for our guests (many of whom were coming from out of town) to just be at one spot. And it couldn't have been a prettier spot to be at! The venue itself is really pretty, both inside and out and was perfect for our small (85 person) wedding. We were lucky with a totally sunny Sunday and so the ceremony was outside (but if it was raining, they would have moved it inside and taken care of all those details.) It was nice to not have to worry at all about the weather for the ceremony...

The day of the wedding Chelsea was there the entire time until the end- she went over a few details to make sure things were all set at first, got us into place for the ceremony, and then generally just made sure things ran smoothly (which was such a relief to us!) Gary also was there throughout and helped with any announcements that needed to be made which was really nice.

The food was amazing- you can tell it is totally fresh and made with love by the chef (who we were able to meet with prior to the event). They were also really flexible with our menu ideas, as we wanted family-style seating/eating and it was pulled off perfectly. Our guests raved about the food and it seemed like there was plenty to go around. The desserts were AMAZING. We had a few pie flavors and just absolutely loved every flavor.

Everything about the day was simply amazing and we owe that to everyone at Crissey Farm! (We also can't wait to go back for some more of that pie and freshly whipped cream...)

My husband and I had our reception of 175 people at Crissey Farm in May. The venue itself is gorgeous with the rustic yet modern feel and outdoor space. They made delicious food, a gorgeous cake, and even worked with us to provide subs for our guests after the wedding. Chelsea and Gary were great about helping us to find a package that met our needs, working with our crazy families, and providing a stress-free wedding day that was absolutely perfect!!

It's a fabulous looking place. Very well finished venue that retains its charm. It's obviously designed with purpose. The fireplace was charming, the dance floor big enough…the section where the bar is cosy but still part of the bigger venue. The best thing I guess is that the layout makes sense and functions smoothly- there are no odd quirks or kinks BUT it still has charm. The outdoor area is great. We had a cool Fall night and people could hang out in the outdoor area but that's right next to the dance floor so the people outside could easily pop in at a second's notice.

The setting is lovely. It's on a busy road but is set back far enough for it not to be a problem. Again there is great functionality with the proximity of hotels, inns, motels etc. The scenery is gorgeous and Great Barrington itself is a couple of miles away, and that's cute.

Crissey Farm has a huge amount of charm. The detail of the beams and the ceiling is really well done. The bar is a real bar and is fantastic. The bathrooms are lovely. There is a bridal suite upstairs which is very spacious and handy. There is the brewery next store which is great for a few drinks afterwards.
The staff- Gary and Chelsea were awesome. They were thoughtful and they never pushed any up-sell. They really wanted it to be a special day for us. They were flexible. I really saw the value in this as the date grew closer and when things got really busy. The chef is apparently well known in the area and she was also very nice…nothing to hide, walked us through the kitchen- even on the day of to show us how she was preparing food. That stuff kinda calms you and is an eye in a hurricane of wedding stress :)

The food was fabulous..we did the buffet option and it was well planned and executed and everyone was very complimentary. The ship-roast was a HUGE hit.

It was a special occasion and hats off to everyone at Crissey Farm.

I'm writing this just 8 hours after leaving our daughters wedding. Crissey Farm did an outstanding job from day one. Gary and Chelsea and their team were the most professional, kind, attentive staff to work along side. They took care of every little detail we wanted and many more that we didn't even know we wanted. The venue is beautiful, and the service was spot on. And Odell...amazing chef. Every guest came to me to tell me how gorgeous and delicious the appetizer spread was. The cake was to die for and a work of art. You made our day stress free and I would strongly recommend your venue to anyone who asked. Thank you for everything.
