"Everything has a purpose on the board."
— Founder Chelsey Berghausen
Our secret to maximizing the taste profile of every ingredient? We only use the freshest, in-season, highest quality foods. While we try to source locally first, we may go further afield to bring the very best bites to your board.
We start with a selection of artisan cheeses and charcuterie sliced fresh to order, then build the flavor experience with interesting additions and garnishes that make every mouthful explode with flavor.
Like our commitment to quality ingredients, we’re equally obsessed with perfectly balanced boards. Every element is carefully paired and placed near other bites to bring out different delectable flavors.
Accoutrements like crisp pickles, candied pecans, and local honey pop against artisan meats and cheeses while edible flowers and fresh herbs perfect the board.
They say we eat with our eyes first, and our thoughtfully selected meats, cheeses, accoutrements and garnishes are arranged to visually satisfy before your very first bite.
Meant to be a 360-degree experience that looks delicious (and beautiful!) from every angle, our handcrafted walnut wood boards can be loaned for your event or you can choose a biodegradable bamboo board to keep, reuse, or recycle.
Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Boards & Beez is proud to source many of our ingredients from farmers and boutique eateries throughout the Tri-State area.
Known as “Beez” to her friends and family, Boards & Beez Founder Chelsey Berghausen honors that legacy with a little wink to her brand’s namesake on every board—sweet golden honey.
Chelsey loves when good food brings people together. When sampling, exploring, and tasting their way around a board sparks new conversations and real connections. When every guest has a flavor experience that’s totally new and totally unforgettable.
A Cincinnati native, Chelsey graduated from the University of Cincinnati’s prestigious DAAP program and started her career as a fashion buyer for a luxury boutique. Chelsey made boards for friends and family until she realized her yen for design, attention to detail, and a genuine desire to give people provocative bites added up to a life-changing new business.
