We had the good fortune of connecting with Barry Van Meter and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Barry, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I was fired from my job and no one would hire me.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I started this company in 2018 and did a lot of failing to get to where we got here today. It’s funny how a lot of failing looks like success lol . How I overcame challenges is I have no choice I have to win there is no plan B. I have learned that if I bless someone and give them the tools to succeed I will be blessed back. I want people to know that our customers service it’s better thin our products. We give lifetime warranty not for the customer but to make the best products out there.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We have a farm and some of the best food is cooked right here at the house and if they want to see nature will I have 5 kayaks and a beautiful river to paddle down. We have nature trails on our property and hot tents if you want to sleep in nature.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I start this out of need to feed my family
