Thomas Hill Organics highlights the farmers behind the food
If Thomas Hill Organics Bistro & Wine Bar had a motto, it would be diversity, diversity, diversity. Over the years, the Paso Robles eatery has carved itself a niche for fresh flavors and bold dishes with organic ingredients sourced from a wide variety of local purveyors. Most of the ingredients the Thomas Hill Organics team uses – from produce to grains, proteins to dairy – originates just minutes from the kitchen.
“Most of the success we’ve experienced at Thomas Hill Organics can be traced back to the quality and diversity of our ingredients,” said owner Debbie Thomas, who opened the restaurant in 2009. “Our farmers are the heroes of our story.”
Lately, this network of farmers has been behind not only THO’s celebrated cuisine but their cocktails, too, with drinks featuring locally-grown Cara Cara oranges, lavender, and ginger. So, who are some of the faces behind each dish and cocktail at Thomas Hill Organics?

“Owned by Pete Cramer, PC Cattle is ground-fed beef at its best.”
