Who We Are

Mackenthun’s story begins in the early 1900’s. Brother and sister Jamie Mackenthun and Jessa Theis’s great-great grandfather, August Mackenthun, opened a small meat market in Plato, Minnesota. In 1917, August’s son, Arthur, moved the business to Waconia. After WWll, Arthur and his son, Mack, relocated a sausage maker by the name of Reinholdt Schultz from Germany. Schultz brought delicious new sausage recipes from his home country. These are many of the same award-winning recipes that are still used today in our Signature Meats…
