Peach Tree Farm History
In the late 1960’s Ermine Lovell moved her real estate office to Peach Tree Circle farm, located on top of Wishing Moon Hill in Sippewisset, where Hollis Lovell, having sold his Ten Acre Store, developed an extensive orchard, gardens and established a restaurant. Prior to the Lovell’s owning the property is was a gas station. Both Mr. & Mrs. Lovell continued to operate the gardens and orchard, as well as the restaurant until their deaths. Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries, Inc. inherited the 6.2 acre parcel in May of 2005. Carrie Richter currently leases the garden area from Salt Pond and will continue to operate and lease the farm and property as it has been for the past 40 years.
