Meet the Chapell's

Bruce Chapell

The original members of our family came to America on the Mayflower in 1620. The Templeton family were one of the 3 founding families in the town of East Montpelier moving from Peterboro, New Hampshire in 1788. The farm as it is known today was settled by John Templeton Jr. in 1810 and is 150 acres in size. To put that date into perspective, Thomas Jefferson was serving as our President during that period of time. In 2010 Templeton Farm became a bicentennial farm which has been in continuous family ownership for 200 years. For 8 generations Templeton Farm has been producing bountiful forage, grain, apple, maple and timber crops along with dairy, beef and sheep.
