Painted Hills Natural Beef is a natural beef product originating in Wheeler County, Oregon. The story behind PHNB begins in the mid-90s. Several ranchers got together to discuss the current trends in the beef industry and how to add value to beef products. They discovered that they were all experiencing the same confusion. “Why is it that I am producing top quality cattle and yet all I hear at grocery stores and restaurants is that beef isn’t as good as it used to be?” As it turned out, the cattle that came from the ranches of Wheeler County were being lost in the mix of cattle from all over North America. Their cattle were being blended into pens that held cattle of lower quality. This beef, in turn, was being sent to the market and restaurants, resulting in unhappy consumers
Those ranchers decided to do something. They formed a corporation called Painted Hills Premium Beef, Inc. – the groundwork for Painted Hills Natural Beef. The Natural beef name was born out of a desire to better reflect the focus of the organization. The goal of this corporation was to eliminate the inconsistency in its beef product while producing natural meat of the highest quality. Step by step they reviewed the beef productions process. They formed the concepts that are now the foundation of the Painted Hills Natural Beef program and product lines.
Years ago on a Seattle volleyball court two friends with a passion for food dreamed of creating a company which would provide superior quality cured-meat products to consumers with an emphasis on community and environmental awareness. In February of 2007, George Gavros and Charlie Hertz realized their dream by launching Zoe’s Meats.
Zoe’s Meats are abundantly flavorful, but what we seek to deliver is much more than that. We named our company after Zoe, George’s four-year-old daughter. Our vision is to provide our families and yours better food options through an environmentally and community friendly company.
It started more than fifty years ago, on a New York farm, where I watched my father work hard day in and out to become one of the country’s earliest ‘conservation’ farmers (there was no ‘sustainability’ back then). Later, I ran a large dairy plant and learned just about everything there is to know about dairy. I also learned that I am not willing to compromise on the quality of my products. It’s definitely not the easiest or cheapest way to work, but I do it because it’s the right thing to do.
Years later, my wife, Shahnaz, and I moved to the Pacific Northwest and came to own Snoqualmie Ice Cream and the Snoqualmie Ice Cream Café. We fulfilled a life-long dream of working together and owning a business doing something we love: making the most perfect ice cream available.

Peterson Cheese Company was founded in 1947 and remains family-owned and operated. They began as an importer of Scandinavian cheeses–which at the time was an underserved niche in the local marketplace. Our original location was in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Over time, our business expanded to meet growing awareness and demand for a larger variety of imported specialty cheeses from Europe.
We are people who are passionate about food, family, and a job done well and done right.
We are lucky enough to be located one block for the famous Pike Place Market, established just 3 years after the Virginia Inn first opened its doors (1907 and 1903 respectively). Words cannot adequately describe how great it is to just run down the hill in the middle of the day and replenish, replace, restock or embellish literally anything that comes to your table.
Need some cheese – done! Need more fresh herbs – easy! Sold out of mussels – nope! If we need they’ve got it.
