Mr. Happy Living here… 

I love entrepreneurs and authors and coaches and combat survivors and people from every walk of life that have discovered their reason for being on this planet… 

And that’s why I love Jerry Barnes… he’s a veteran, and an author, who’s labor of love is writing about combat survivor heroes of the United States military… Jerry is a former senior executive of the US Army Corps of Engineers who met a persuasive, 87 year old literary agent in 2018 that sparked a late-in-life, unexpected adventure which has, to date, led to 60 stories and two published books, with many more proposals/ideas arriving in Jerry’s inbox and his imagination literally every week.

John specializes in producing the very best outputs (including the country’s only 100% non-GMO, pasture raised pork snack sticks and salamis) by using the very best inputs (high quality feedstuffs such as apples, acorns, pears, alfalfa, and grass fed dairy products rather than cereal grains)… that makes sense – to get the best out you gotta put the best in!
