A ninth-generation farm deeply connected to its community and local food
At Templeton Farm in East Montpelier, Bruce Chapell and Sherry Miller have turned their summertime “Burger Nights” into a community tradition. While music from a band fills the barn, the entire family pitches in to serve the community burgers from the farm’s own grass-fed beef. The plates, heaped with locally sourced potatoes, salad, and the Templeton farm burger, are a labor of love.
Through the production of beef and maple syrup, which are sold at the farm’s honor-system store, the Chapell’s ninth-generation farm is thriving and sustainable. It also hosts a section of the East Montpelier Trail system!
