Build The Best Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie (pronounced: shar-KOO-tər-ee) is all the rage right now, and for good reason! While the word charcuterie is the culinary art of preparing meat products, it is often used to describe the practice of pairing meat with an assortment of different snacking items, such as fruit, cheese, crackers, sauces, and nuts. We too are big fans of these so-called grazing boards, especially as we have so many great products that make the best charcuterie board. Follow along as we list US Wellness Meats items that are perfect for building the most delicious board.

1. Meat 

Of course, we have to start with meat! When sourcing from USWM, you can be sure all items are of the highest quality, pasture raised on regenerative farms.

Meats we love for a grazing board:
