The Reason For The Journey
We believe that Americans, regardless of age, race, or political perspective, are longing for a new era of growth and prosperity in the United States. American Mule Accreditation is doing its part by empowering consumers while influencing growth for U.S. based businesses. Our distinct badge represents those who design and build products of superior American quality while aiding in the economic growth of our nation.
American Mule believes our nation's flag is being misused to drive the increase of sales for non-qualifying companies. There is an unspoken irony that exists when our U.S. flag can be carelessly thrown on the labeling of products solely for capital gain. We consider it unfair to the hard-working American entrepreneur, craftsmen as well as the American consumer. This act also creates an unjust outcome in vain of those who have fought for our country's freedom and our inalienable rights as citizens of this great country. At American Mule, we long to do our part to help preserve the American dream of wealth and prosperity for our current generations and generations to come.
Where are these goods really coming from? Where are my hard-earned dollars really going? Is this purchase giving back to my local community and country? These are honest questions we ask ourselves as aware American shoppers. When given a fair opportunity at the point of purchase, American Mule bets on the empowered American consumer to choose American quality over opposing imports. The dream is alive for a new generation of growth in American creative design, ingenuity, and manufacturing.
We believe a bit of grit from new businesses along with consumer trust can go a long way in today's marketplace.

A Quick Look At Our Process
When a business applies to become accredited, our passionate team of board members closely examines how a company is producing goods in the United States. We review how products are made, what materials or ingredients are used, and where the labor is sourced during all major steps of assembly and final production. Additionally, we examine what a business is bringing back to the local communities and families of the United States.
The result is a top-notch community of businesses and craftsmen who go above and beyond to bring home the bacon for the American people.
Whether you are a company of ten years or just launched six months ago, joining our accredited community is a great way to earn "street cred" within the hearts of the American people.

Meet The Founder
Casey R. Barras
A direct descendent of men who fought in both the American revolutionary and civil wars; A great-grandson to an immigrant coal miner and grandson to a WWII veteran, Casey Barras has inherited the spirit of what it means to be a hard-working American Mule.
Born in the 1980's, Barras remembers climbing into the family attic to discover his father's childhood toys. Even as a kid, he noticed the superior quality of American made products from previous generations.
Upon graduating with a bachelor's degree in business, he found himself in an America fueled by greed rather than national pride and long-term sustainability. Although still the greatest country on earth, it was an America that no longer praised a thriving 'in-house' manufacturing system based on heritage and premium quality.
To make ends meet, he sold imported wholesale goods to big box retail giants like Wal-mart, quickly becoming a top sales performer for the company. But Barras had little pride for the products he was bringing into his community and country. Of course he wanted a paycheck. But at what cost? He soon decided to no longer be apart of a machine that was selling cheaply designed, imported goods to the American people. So, in 2016, he worked day and night to establish his unique legacy brand built on quality-craftsmanship called American Mule.
The concept of American Mule Accreditation comes from a true and hard-working American spirit. The company embodies the concept of unshakeable American grit and the decision to never succumb to unfulfilling work simply for a paycheck. Barras believes in a very bright American future as we unite to do everything we can in our own communities across the nation to support each other in business for the future of the American people and our country.
