Summer is prettier on The Farm

A new corner stop is making summer just a little more beautiful in Tiverton Four Corners. It’s an outdoor agriculture center called, The Farm and it’s run by Peggy Siebrandt and Gayla Gibbons. The two women have lovingly flattered a once vacant lot with lavender, roses, shrubs, and an array of freshly cut flowers. “It’s been my dream,” says Peggy glancing at the land that stretches back into her farmhouse hidden on the hill. The Farm wraps around a small country shred decorated with foxglove and rose shrubs. 

Though just off the main road, this little oasis keeps you blissfully surrounded by fragrant florals wherever you wander on the stone path. The desire to create beautiful spaces like this one has been long-time goal for Peggy; after a career in hospitality, she cooperated to open The Chandler in Newport, Rhode Island where she soon became enchanted with the sweet solitude of nearby-Tiverton’s back roads. “This is more my speed,” says Peggy who grew up on a farm in Nebraska. Now she’s opened her backyard to visitors with the same hospitality-driven mindset, an artful eye for beauty, and now, a green thumb. Neighbors are thanking Peggy for the tasteful and graceful face-lift to the corner lot.

As for the name, The Farm, Peggy says that’s been her go-to phrase for years, it’s where she’s always gone back to, and where she’s always came from. Don’t miss your chance to stop by The Farm, just across from Milk and Honey Bazzaar on Main Rd, for gardening advice, landscape planning, or a fresh walk in a countryside garden.

The pace here is as leisurely as a warm summer day.
