Kempton Farm

Peacham, VT
700 acres
300 milking cows

Farm of distinction

When George Kempton was a young farmhand, he had to cut ice out of the pond to cool the milk and used horses for most of the farm chores. Today, the Kemptons’ farm is most decidedly in the 21st century and George is still involved, although his son and daughter-in-law, Matt and Dawn, and their two sons, Dylan and Will, have taken over the day-to-day operations. The farm, which milks about 300 cows, has earned the distinction of being the only one to provide milk for the award-winning Cabot Clothbound Cehddar, aged nearby in the Cellars at Jasper Hill.

George and Patty Kempton raised 5 kids and well over 7,000 dairy cows on their farm.
Peacham is a quintessential Vermont town.
