Tim Field shares plan for joined Styer Orchard and Market �New offerings will include pre-picked produce sold at
the store, a museum and an open air pavilion By Samantha Bambino The Times
For Tim Field, becoming the sole lessee of the Styer Orchard and Market hasn’t been an easy road. But he’s ready for the challenge. During the recent Middletown Township board of supervisors meeting, he outlined his plans to not only maintain the historic integrity of both properties, but also introduce fresh concepts. A main goal is to unite the orchard and market, which ran as separate operations for the past 20 years. While Field’s parents owned the orchard (he bought it from them two years ago), the market was the pride and joy of Dave and Sharon Barberides. When both leases recently ran out, the supervisors decided to offer only one lease. This would allow produce from the orchard to be sold at the store - something that hadn’t happened for 20 years, but was founder Pop Styer’s wish. Both parties submitted proposals, and the supervisors unanimously agreed (much to the dissatisfaction of the Barberides’ and their long-time customers) that Field should be the sole proprietor. “We’re looking to continue pickyour-own operations, but also offer all the produce from the farm at the store. People are very used to coming down and picking their eggplant, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes. Everything that we’ve done in the past will still be available, but now if you’re not feeling the heat, it’s going to be available pre-picked, which is something that has not happened at the farm in 20 years,” said Field. “We’re also going to showcase a lot of seasonal goods 4
at the orchard. So, if peaches are in season, there will be peach slushies and peach cobbler.” There will still be no entry fee for pick-your-own operations or the hayride. Field added that school tours, which typically welcome up to 6,000 students annually, will also remain. He is currently working with the Heritage Conservancy to construct a new open air pavilion, which will feature seating and restroom facilities. “We’re really looking forward to this. It’s going to add a great feature to the farm, especially for the school tours,” he said. Regarding his newly-acquired farm store, Field assured locals that most aspects of the spot won’t be going away anytime soon. “We have no plans to change some of the current things that work up there, the deli, the bakery and the grocery operations,” he said. “If you’re looking for a pie, there’s gonna be pie. If you’re looking for deli, there’s gonna be meat, hoagies, stuff like that.” New offerings at the store will include ice cream crafted from orchard items like blackberries and peaches. Additionally, Field plans to transform a portion of the gift shop into a museum of Styer history. The first pieces to be featured will be a cider press and 60-foot-long, old-fashioned washing machine. Demonstrations will take place. “We can show everybody the past, but also the better, more efficient way to do it in the future here,” he said. Cosmetic improvements to the store will include painting, re-landscaping and the installation of new floors and ceilings. Greenhouses will be constructed,

allowing Field to sell vegetables and flowers. Also, food trucks will now be permitted to operate at the market. Previously, only hot dogs, funnel cake and beverages could be sold. Field added that he’s looking to offer more festivals and seasonal treats, such as hot cider while picking apples and pumpkins in October. “I do think the vision is a really good vision. I like how you’re ready to move forward with this and we’re going to move that whole property forward as one,” supervisors chairperson Tom Tosti told the husband and father of two. “I hope that from now on, we can all move forward and just start enjoying the farm and store as one.” Earlier in the year, when the supervisors named Field as the sole lessee, there was much pushback from the Barberides’ and community members. The Barberides’ were heartbroken over losing their business of 20 years, and their loyal customers fiercely advocated for the couple. However, their efforts were for naught when the supervisors adamantly stood by their decision. The Barberides’ recently shared

photos on Facebook of their nowempty store. “We know that in time everyone will move on from this. We know that our time here will be a memory,” they said. “Maybe someday we’ll move on, too, but today we are grieving while we say goodbye to this place, this place that has felt like an old dear friend.” •• April 14, 2021

allowed the trio to reflect on their efforts during the pandemic and share goals for the future. Unlike 2020’s event, this one was offered via Zoom. According to Marseglia, there was a “silver lining” to COVID-19 - areas in the county that needed improvement were made blatantly clear. A prime example was mental health in the jail system. With inpatient hospitals forced to limit services because of the virus, she said police often had nowhere to take a mentally-ill person but jail. “So many people were sent home because of COVID, they didn’t want to have it spread, which left a certain amount of people still in the prison,” Marseglia said. The county hired a full-time staff member to look for ways to get them out of jail and into a mental health facility as soon as they entered the prison. Additionally, the former Women’s Community Corrections Center is in the process of being transformed into a 24-bed facility. Instead of going to jail, those battling mental health issues will be placed there to receive the help they need. Some beds will be reserved for graduating patients of Norristown State Hospital who need a place to go before matriculating back into the community. Marseglia added that the pilot program in Bensalem Township, which embedded two social workers in the police department to help handle mental health crises, addiction and racial/ethnic issues, will be expanded to more areas. “They won’t have to be in crisis anymore,” Marseglia said. For Harvie, a bright spot of 2020 was the formation of the Economic Recovery Task Force, which distributed $27 million in grant money to small businesses across the county. Visit Bucks County was awarded $3 million to advertise “micro-tours” and rejuvenate the hospitality industry. “The idea behind it is to help the county provide services to the business community, not only people who own businesses, but who are employees,” Harvie said of the task force.
A main goal moving forward is to look at alternative energy. Harvie wants to have a model ordinance provided to all municipalities that they can adopt in their municipal codes. It would give guidance to businesses and homeowners looking to implement solar power. Harvie is also interested in bringing the CPACE program to Bucks County in the next few months. This would allow commercial property owners to take out loans for solar panels. The loans would match the lifespan of whatever they’re installing. DiGirolamo, a former state representative, touched on the general election and all of the controversy surrounding the mail-in ballots. He stressed that, when the bill that created mail-in voting was passed in 2018, it was supported almost unanimously by Republican members of the Pennsylvania House and Senate. “As far as Bucks County is concerned, our election was safe. It was secure. It was fair,” DiGirolamo said. “Everybody who voted legally, their vote was counted.” Though DiGirolamo is Republican and his fellow board members are Democrats, he stressed that there’s been no partisanship. “I can assure everyone, that has not happened here in Bucks County between the three of us. From the very beginning, we have put politics aside and we have worked together. I think that’s what people would expect from their elected officials,” he said. “The three of us fought for Bucks County and to do what was right for the county.” He reflected on how the board, along with Bucks County Health Department director Dr. David Damsker, rallied for the county to have its own reopening metrics during COVID-19. They didn’t want the county to be lumped in with Philadelphia and neighboring counties that had far higher infection rates. “We lobbied and fought to get Bucks County open again for the business community,” DiGirolamo said, adding that Bucks entered the yellow and green phases before the state originally planned. Bucks County is slated to receive $122 million from the latest stimulus bill. The commissioners are currently deciding how the money will be spent. •• April 14, 2021

Ready for more: Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Robin Robinson will be seeking a second four-year term.
4 more years for Robinson?
Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Robin Robinson will be seeking a second fouryear term. Robinson pointed to first-term initiatives such as the Historic Deed Book Restoration Project, modernizing the office, staying under budget and fighting fraud and scams in Bucks County. She started the Adopt-a-Book Program, which allows business leaders and community members to make donations in support of the preservation project. In all, 341 out of the 700 books have been preserved thus far. To prevent deed scammers, Robinson has placed watermarks on all copies of deeds made outside of the office. In addition, she initiated and helped to build the Bucks County Fraud Alert system that alerts property owners when a property has been recorded in the county under their name. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, Robinson made sure the office remained operating by getting laptops for her department. To keep title searchers and Realtors working during the pandemic, Robinson opened public records back to 1684 and swore in notaries in parking lots when the administration building was closed. If elected to a second term, Robinson plans to continue to modernize the office, make online documents clearer and easier for the public to read, and finish the deed book restoration project. Prior to taking office, Robinson worked in the commissioners’ office for 10 years. The Republican candidate is Dan McPhillips, of Warminster, an inheritance tax agent in the Bucks County Register of April 14, 2021

Arkoosh running for Senate
Democrat Val Arkoosh, chairwoman of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners, has launched a campaign for U.S. Senate. “We’re at a critical moment. I’m fiercely determined to do what’s right - to stand up to Trump Republicans and push back on their harmful agenda. Instead, we’ll
build a future that lifts people up, rebuild our infrastructure with good-paying union jobs, protect our planet by addressing the climate crisis, and finish the job we started to lower the cost of health care,” Arkoosh said. “That’s why I’m running for United States Senate. Pennsylvanians deserve to have a voice -- one that will cut through all the noise and get things done. I’m determined to be that voice for you.” Arkoosh, a married mother of three, is a physician who ran in what was the 13th Congressional District primary in 2014. She finished last in a four-way race won by Brendan Boyle. In 2015, after Gov. Tom Wolf named Montgomery County Commissioner Leslie Richards to head PennDOT, Common Pleas Court judges appointed Arkoosh to replace her. Other Democrats running are Jenkintown Borough Councilwoman Alex Khalil, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, Brandaun Dean, Lew Tapera, Dr. Larry E. Johnson, Dr. Kevin Baumlin and John McGuigan. Republican candidates are Jeff Bartos, Sean Gale, Kathy Barnette and Everett Stern. ••
Bucks County Treasurer Kris Ballerini teamed up with volunteers and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission to help stock the Delaware Canal ahead of trout season’s opening day on April 3. “COVID took so many things away from us in 2020, but our connection to the outdoors seems only to have grown stronger,” Ballerini said. “It’s great to see, more and more folks taking advantage of the beauty that Bucks County has to offer.” Fishing licenses and permits can be purchased through the Bucks County Treasurer’s Office. A valid fishing license is required for anyone age 16 and over when angling for any species in Pennsylvania. A trout permit is also required to fish in stocked waters. To learn more, visit buckscounty.org, or to schedule an appointment, call 215-348-6244. For more information about fishing licenses in Pennsylvania, visit fishandboat. com. The following Bucks County waterways are stocked with trout: • Delaware Canal (Two Sections-Upper Washington Crossing State Park and Lower Washington Crossing State Park downstream to Ferry Road in Morrisville) • East Branch Perkiomen Creek (Branch Road Bridge (T-431) downstream through Sellersville) • Levittown Lake • Neshaminy Creek (Two sections-Valley

Route honors 9/11 heroes
Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick, Gerald Connolly and Don Beyer introduced legislation to designate the “September 11th National Memorial Trail.” The Secretary of Interior would be authorized to designate a tour route to link the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in New York City, the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. “Less than six months from now, our nation will collectively pause to remember the 20th anniversary of September 11th, 2001 — the day we watched unspeakable acts of evil unfold and incredible acts of sacrifice and heroism by the brave people of our great nation. Our bipartisan legislation designates a trail that connects each of the different sites attacked, providing us an ongoing opportunity to come together and reflect on that tragic day,” Fitzpatrick said. “I am proud to join Congressmen Connolly and Beyer in introducing this legislation that will help ensure we never forget the resilience of America and that we will always honor the many heroes and innocent lives our nation lost that day.” The September 11th National Memorial Trail is a 1,300-mile system of trails and roadways that links the World Trade Center in New York, the Pentagon and the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville. It serves as a tribute to the fallen men and women who perished on Sept. 11, 2001. The trail is the result of a partnership among the September 11th National Memorial Trail Alliance, National Park Service, state and local governments and other nonprofit organizations. The trail’s design constitutes a triangular route that will start at the Pentagon Memorial. The trail will extend northwest to the Flight 93 National Memorial. It will then continue east to New York City’s National September 11th Memorial and Museum. The Trail then heads south following the East Coast Greenway connecting to the 9/11 Memorial Garden of Reflection. It then connects to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and ultimately returns to the Pentagon Memorial.•• P01
