Yolo Popcorn

A Vermont Popcorn Company

How It Started

The Marriage of Iowa Popcorn
& Vermont Maple

Iowa could be called the popcorn capital of America. During the American farm crisis of the 1980’s, Peter Gutgsell lamented the fact that few businesses were adding value in agriculture. Having grown up in Iowa and since transplanted to Vermont, Peter imagined a unique way to showcase the agricultural specialties of his two home states: Iowa popcorn together with Vermont maple.
