Cascade Organic, LLC is a cooperative effort of farmers, foragers, and fishermen. Our Mission is to bring people back to “Common Sense” foods.

Salumist Elias Cairo, grew up first generation Greek-American with a father who made charcuterie at home. Doing things the old-fashioned way was commonplace. Elias later journeyed to Europe to apprentice in the kitchens of masters. It was there that he rediscovered the art of curing meat and found inspiration in the markets and mountain towns of the old world.
Back in beautiful Portland, Oregon, Elias set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct traditional technique that is seldom seen in America.
The result is Olympia Provisions, Oregon’s first USDA-approved salumeria, established in 2009, deeply rooted in the past.
Pacific Coast Fruit Co.

Since then, we’ve expanded to become one of the largest, independent produce distributors in the Northwest.
In 1993, founder Joe Guth was the Sous Chef at Zefiro, a groundbreaking restaurant in Portland’s emerging culinary scene. Previous experience as a cook at the renowned Chez Panisse Cafe in Berkeley, California, exposed Joe to a wide variety of foods that were not available to him in Portland. When he couldn’t find his favorite items, Joe realized other chefs might be similarly frustrated. Thus began Provvista Specialty Foods, with a simple notion: to provide local restaurants with the best quality food products at a fair price.
Our original catalog listed high quality olive oil, Italian pasta, heirloom beans, and a few other hard-to-find ingredients. As the company and Portland grew, so did our product list. Joe’s original vision expanded to include a dual focus on imported goods and American artisanal products, providing Provvista’ s growing audience with an array of unique, high quality food items. Our current product offerings reflect the diverse needs of our customers, and the list grows continuously.

Starvation Alley Farms
Starvation Alley is rooted in the celebration of food and grounded in respect for the people and places that grow it. The country road leading to our bogs was playfully named Starvation Alley during the Great Depression. While it was true the community had little financial means, they ate well by foraging, farming, and living in harmony with the land. This “tide’s out, table’s set" mentality still describes our close relationship to our local environment. We know that taking on the role of farmer is taking on the role of steward. And we believe organic growing practices are essential to the health of the land. Land that, if respected and cared for, will keep us well fed for generations to come.
