Experience at Painted Hills Natural Beef

What happens when a student from a rural community goes off to college and is struggling to figure out what they want to do? Does the student continue to work their way through their education, guessing at where they are heading? Does a snap decision take place with the hopes they are on the right trail?

No. The student doesn’t flounder around, blindly pushing on. The community rallies behind them, and it goes something like this.

When I first started my college career, I was so certain that I would become a mechanical engineer. After finishing my freshman year, I knew that nothing about that prospect made me happy, and only that I wanted to be back in agriculture. Unfortunately, after progressing through most of my junior year, I was still blind in where I wanted my education to go.

After hearing that I had changed majors, but was still struggling to decide what I wanted to do, Gabrielle and Will Homer, owners and management at Painted Hills Natural Beef, asked if I had any interest in interning with them, learning about the beef industry, management and sales. I would be exposed to a little bit of everything and might be able to get a grasp on what my future could hold.

Given this amazing opportunity, I jumped at the possibilities.

Three months ago, I began interning at Painted Hills Natural Beef. Walking into an office full of unfamiliar faces, I was quickly greeted by Gabrielle, and introduced to the crew. Before long, unfamiliar was a thought in the breeze, and I was welcomed in to begin the process of learning what the business does.

While working and studying at the office, I learned about the history and need for the company, what we provide for cattle ranchers, and a background behind the beef market.

I learned about pricing, marketing, cattle procurement, and the management behind a company that cannot slow down for small inconveniences. With the privilege of travel, Will and I went across the PNW, journeying to Boise, Pasco, Richland, Seattle, Salem, Brownsville, and the areas in between, stopping to talk with feedlot managers, retail stores and processing plants. I witnessed the entire process, from ranch to repast, and all the management, support and logistics to make it happen.

From buying cattle, setting and analyzing prices, and fostering consumer relationships, I learned what it means to be in the beef business. I am not sure what I expected walking in, but I can say in certainty that I am extremely glad that I had the opportunity to work at Painted Hills Natural Beef, meet many new people, and gain a little clarity in where I want to go from here.

Farmhouse Market

Farmhouse Market, owned and operated by Jay and Melissa Bluher, opened February 9, 2007 in Fall City, WA. Farmhouse Market provides locals and visitors to Fall City a local “mom and pop” option to chain markets.

Customers find many local items throughout the market including wine and seasonal produce from the Fall City area and the Yakima Valley. Painted Hills Natural Beef from Fossil, Oregon is the exclusive fresh beef found at Farmhouse Market. Customers can find a variety of seasonal produce from local producers. The tomatoes for example, aren’t just any tomatoes, they are Roland Dagdagan’s tomatoes from the Yakima Valley town of Wapato, Washington.

We’ve just started carrying the grass-fed line. I tell folks all the time, if you want a great steak, come see me. If you’re not satisfied, I’ll return your money 100%.

A New Look

Painted Hills Natural Beef is proud to introduce an updated branding image. The new look has been incorporated into updated point of sale (POS) materials including packaging labels, case dividers, signage and brochures.
20 years ago, customers would comment at demos, “This beef tastes like my grandpa used to raise,” and a tagline was born. The image of traditional ranching methods being passed down from generation to generation resonated with consumers. PHNB’s updated image brings an updated message, “Beef the way nature intended.”
“Today’s consumers are serious about food transparency,” states Jen Homer, Director of Marketing at PHNB, “They value the slow process, local, sustainable, clean. Our new brand image gives PHNB the opportunity to stand out from the rest of the herd; to educate customers about our products, and to align our image with the business we are today.”
Later this spring, watch for the launch of PHNB’s website with an updated look and new responsive design. To order POS materials for your store or restaurant, contact Jen at 877-306-8247 or email her at marketing@natural-beef.com.
Painted Hills Natural Beef – new look – same great taste.
