Born out of a personal love of snacking, Graze by Carrie offers luxury grazing boards and boxes brimming with locally sourced, bite-size ingredients. Summer sausage from 2M Beef in Hallsville, Missouri, is owner Carrie Schlimme’s new favorite feature, and the clusters of grapes and cheese remind her of the snack trays she used to make her kids – memories that inspire her professional creations to this day. Something sweet is always included, too – think honey from Stem to Table Farm in Columbia or a selection of perfectly ripe strawberries – because Schlimme believes eating is not complete without a treat to tie things together. If a grazing board is more than you need, try a Nosh Box (a box for two, meant to be enjoyed picnic-style) or a Cutie Cup (individually portioned snacks served in a cup). You can pick up orders at Plume in Columbia, where Schlimme leads DIY grazing board workshops; she also offers private events for any occasion.
