JF History
Jager Foods Shiitake Soups were first created in 1985 by Pete and Sue Jager in Minnesota.

In 2007 Nick and Silke Jager created an online presence, unfortunately, a year later they had to stop producing the semi-famous Shiitake soups as well.

In the spirit of good food and the love to read, write and travel the website/blog lives on.
