Mountain Pine Grazing Co. is a labor of love for our mother-daughter team!

Kyla Herbst handles the behind-the-scenes of website design and marketing. It's a fun way to continue our tradition of working together, even at a distance!

(Kyla now lives on a ranch in Wyoming with her husband and two kids.)

Our Story

            Mountain Pine Grazing Co was born from our well-known catering company "The Catered Event , LLC", a locally-owned, women operated Colorado business based out of our private commercial kitchen in Gypsum, CO.

         With the onset of a global pandemic and Covid-19, the challenges presented to all of us in the food industry have required us to find creative ways to power on and do the best we can. Through all the changes, sometimes beautifully creative ventures emerge! Mountain Pine Grazing Company has been just that!

Owner Michelle New has been making delicious charcuterie boards and sweet & savory platters for her clients in the Vail Valley for over three decades.

To comply with local health restrictions for the food industry, during the challenges of the pandemic, she decided to reconstruct her stunning grazing platters into  signature food boxes /platters and boards,  available for pickup or delivery.


With her many decades of catering and chef experience, transforming The Catered Event's very popular line of charcuterie, cheese and fruit, savory and sweet boards and platters and placing them in eco-friendly, portable dining boxes, beautiful platters and boards, just made sense!

Our Grazing options have become very popular and we will continue providing them as an expanded business  through "The Catered Event,LLC"


Thank you for supporting our vision for styling fun food that warms the heart and fills the belly!

"Grazing Boxes" are a portable version of our popular Grazing (or Charcuterie/Sweet &Savory Appetizer) Boards and Platters . They are a perfect addition to any event!


      Mountain Pine Grazing Co. offers a variety of artistically curated boxes filled with a colorful array of delicious foods, sure to please. We have developed a signature style with offerings selected from some of our most popular specialties from The Catered Event to give you a truly unique, truly local ambiance.

    Our boxes are filled with fresh, delicious traditional charcuterie style meats, gourmet cheeses, fresh/dry fruits, nuts, and olives just to name some of the ingredients - along with the option to add a twist of the Mediterranean flare or our delicious Southwestern flavor.


Myself, my family and my extended family have been enjoying delectable food from The Catered Event, LLC for many years... and Graze Well Vail does not fail to please!!! Would highly recommend!
