Agape is Greek for

Agape is Greek for "the highest form of love" and what better way to show love than creating beautiful graze boxes and boards. God gave us so many beautiful and colorful foods!

A little about our owner..

Jessica Machen, owner/operator, is a Newburgh native who traveled to Jacksonville, FL to obtain her bachelor's degree in nursing before moving back home to start her family in 2008. Today, she has 4 children and a bonus son and continues to help the tristate as a nurse when she is able. She has also coached competitive gymnasts for 20 years as of 2021!

In July of 2020 in the midst of the Covid pandemic she decided to launch her dream idea -- Agape Graze after researching and realizing the tristate area needed a luxury gift delivery service that wasn't floral arrangements. Agape being the Greek word for "the highest form of God's Love", she wished to spread love by way of delicious selections of meats, cheeses, fresh fruits/veggies and other garnishments, supporting local small businesses when at all possible. One thing is certain, even in a pandemic people needed a different type of food and gift options, hence covid friendly individual boxes and boards! She offers contact free delivery within 20 miles of the kitchen and pick up options both on the eastside and in Newburgh.

Agape Graze was the very first independent charcuterie/graze box company in the Evansville and tristate area established July 17,2020. She obtained all required licensure, insurance, and certificates immediately and found a commercial kitchen. They now offer many luxurious options besides charcuterie like custom greeting cards designed by local artist Kenzie Baber, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered Oreos, salami bouquets, snackleboxes options, edible floral sugar cookies, 3 & 4 tier watermelon cakes, 3-4 tier brie and honeycomb cakes, numerous workshops options and the list continues to grow. Charcuterie services also include large events like weddings, cocktail hours, corporate luncheons, lunch and learns, realtor closing gifts, the options are truly endless!
