Man from Vermont has business featured on TV show ‘Shark Tank’

A kid from small town Vermont is making it big time.

Aaron Gailmor owns a healthy snacks company called ‘Brass Roots Food’ and recently had the chance to go on the long-running ABC TV show ‘Shark Tank’ to share his products.

“It’s really, really cool,” Gailmor said. “It really is, because we get to share our story.”

Gailmor’s story begins in the town of Elmore, Vermont, where he attended a one-classroom school growing up. His father, Jon Gailmor, still lives in Elmore, and wasn’t too surprised to see his son find a passion in healthy foods.

“His whole life he was a great athlete and cared about what he put in his body,” Jon said. “So he took all this knowledge and started a company in healthy snacks.”

While doing research on food about a decade ago, Aaron learned about an ancient superfood that’s still grown around the world, but isn’t really known about in the United States.
