Caleb grew up on a fruit farm in Upstate New York and always knew that agriculture and farm markets would be a big part of his life. After attending Cornell University he became the Central New York Fruit Specialist until a farm market opportunity opened up on Long Island. In 2001, he moved from Upstate New York to Long Island and operated a farm market in Merrick for eight years.
While on Long Island he met his future wife Patricia and started having children before moving to Bucks County in November of 2008. Tabora Farm and Orchard was an ideal farm market for Caleb, Patricia and their four young children; they saw a farm market with enormous growth potential and hit the ground running. Currently, Tabora consists of a from-scratch bakery, full service deli, country store and pick your own operation. With an average of fifty employees and huge customer support, Tabora has grown into the vision that Caleb had all those years ago.
Tabora Farm and Orchard
Tabora Farm and Orchard was started in the mid-eighties when a customer went out and picked some peaches. When the customer came in to check out she said to the owner, that it was a shame that he couldn’t make it into a pie. He responded, “If I did, how much would you pay me?” As they say, the rest is history.
Tabora Farms sits on 10.6 acres in Hilltown Township, Bucks County PA. When you walk into the store the first thing you will notice is the heavenly bakery aroma that comes from the 160 from scratch bakery items that are available on a daily basis. With a focus on no additives or preservatives, the bakery and its 14 bakers are always producing fresh items that go directly into the shop for our customers to purchase.
Tabora also hosts a full service deli that offers custom made sandwiches, homemade soups, assorted salads, and many entrees to go. Similar to the bakery, the deli has a fresh from-scratch approach to its products. The deli offers full service catering for any size event and can partner with the bakery to do every aspect of food service needed.
Pick your own apples, peaches, cherries, blueberries and other fruit can be found from May to October. Along with these pick your own fruit experiences, we host family centered farm events that customers have come to expect.
During the year you will also find flowers, hanging baskets, fresh local produce, coffee in many different forms, wine shop, jams, jellies, and many other traditional farm market products. We partner with several other local businesses to make sure we offer the freshest of
the season for our amazing customers to enjoy.
Patricia grew up on Long Island, went to a private Catholic high school and then went on to Mount Saint Mary’s University. While receiving her Master’s degree, she taught elementary school. Her career began teaching remedial math and then went on to teach remedial reading, 3rd grade, and kindergarten, teaching for a total of 15 years. She ultimately put her plan book away when she and her husband discovered Tabora Farm and Orchard in Chalfont, PA. They found the farm on the internet and decided it was going to be their life’s work. Patricia, with her love of baking and appreciation of picking fruit and her husband’s knowledge and skills of farming, the pursuit of Tabora Farms became a mutually exciting endeavor and passion. That was 11 years ago. Since the day they purchased Tabora in November, 2008, their joint venture has been extremely rewarding. Being an actively involved owner of a farm, maintaining human resource work for 50 employees, and most importantly being a mother to four children, ages 12, 11, 9, & 8, makes for a very busy life. It has the occasional challenges, but mostly full of gratifying moments.

Juanita Broaddrick is a retired registered nurse and former nursing home owner.
In 1999, she burst into the public consciousness when she accused President Bill Clinton on national television of raping her as he ran for Governor of Arkansas.
It was a TV appearance she dreaded but felt she had to come forward & tell after being deposed by Independent Counsel regarding the events of April 25, 1978. The NBC Dateline interview, however, was held by NBC until after the Impeachment hearing was over and finally aired two weeks later opposite the Grammy Awards.
After the trauma of relating the horrific events on national TV, Juanita wanted nothing more to do with the media and faded from the public eye until the Presidential Campaign of 2016.
It was then she heard about a tweet Hillary Clinton had made late in 2015. Hillary tweeted, "I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault. Don't let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed….and we're with you".
Juanita could stay quiet no longer, remembering how she and the other victims of Bill Clinton had been harassed and threatened by Hillary Clinton.
Wanting to make sure other victims would have their voices heard, she asked her grandson to show her how to use Twitter.
On January 6, 2016, Juanita tweeted, "I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, the then Arkansas Attorney General, raped me & when I tried to tell my story, Hillary & her “people” tried to silence me.
I am now 73….it never goes away."
The tweet went viral, instantly, and she has been tweeting in support of Donald Trump ever since.
Juanita, along with other victims of Bill Clinton, appeared with Mr. Trump at the 2nd presidential debate October 9, 2016, in St. Louis.
Her desire was to make sure that the victims of assault would have a champion of their cause as President, not someone willing to cover it up or shame the victims to further their own ambitions!
She has been interviewed numerous times on Fox News by Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Martha MacCullam, Judge Jeanine and Jesse Watters, on CNN by Jake Tapper and SE Cupp, on OAN TV by Graham Ledger and on CRTV by Eric Bolling. She continues to do interviews on national radio shows, including the Sean Hannity radio show.
Juanita has written a book, “YOU’D BETTER PUT SOME ICE ON THAT” about her life and the years of trauma and emotions of being raped by a powerful man.
Now, as we see the women coming forward telling their stories of sexual assault by another powerful Attorney General from New York, she remembers what it was like so many years ago.
Their comments in the New Yorker are a haunting reminder of what she went through.
One said, "What do you do if your abuser is the top law-enforcement official in the state?" Those were exactly her thoughts four decades ago. We now see the double standard practiced by the Democrats by elevating the uncorroborated allegations of Dr. Christine Ford while turning their backs on Juanita during the impeachment of Bill Clinton 1999.
Juanita's book is titled, "You'd Better Put Some Ice on That". Those are the words Bill Clinton said to her after he raped her, referring to her swollen, bleeding lip. Those words will forever be a reminder of that day in 1978.
Joanne Cipressi ,CHt, CNL - is a speaker, an award-winning life coach and the author of the book, Ditch Your Doubt. She specializes in helping victims and others to transform their thought and emotional patterns. Joanne is also a mother of two daughters, politically active, and runs an annual Foster Kid Christmas Gift Drive.
Irina Goldstein - Republican Candidate for Philadelphia City Council at Large www.goldsteinforcitycouncil.com
City wage taxes are anywhere between 3 and 4 % for city residents. This is unacceptable and makes Philadelphia an unappealing place to work and raise a family and makes Philadelphians pay the 2nd highest taxes in the country all the while also being one of the poorest and least developed cities in the country.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are parking lot taxes, rental car taxes, hotel room taxes, tobacco taxes, beverages taxes and every imaginable business tax in between which ultimately serve to dissuade business owners from starting or growing in Philadelphia.
Business owners get doubled taxed. Business income and receipts taxes on small business hit owners on both gross receipts and taxable net income. The money the city takes away is largely from small business, and that is money which could have been allocated to expansion and hiring more Philadelphians that so desperately need jobs.
When I'm elected to City Council, I will be the voice for small businesses on City Council. I will stand up against over taxation and will unleash the growth potential that our City has by empowering small businesses and creating opportunities and procedures that will allow a streamlined business launch and operating process.
Additionally, I intend to seek out opportunities to partner with universities, startups, and entrepreneurs abroad to see how we can work together to bring new industry and opportunity to Philadelphia.
Once I am done on Council, Philadelphia will be one of the top metropolitan cities in the country to do business in and with.
As it stands, the beverage tax is here to stay. I am running for office to constantly push from within city hall to repeal the soda tax by a vote of City Council. The negative economic impact of this beverage tax is clear. Every week, thousands of Philadelphians travel outside of the city to purchase their sodas, sports drinks and other items taxed under the Kenney administration.
This isn't just a loss of a few tax dollars on soda. This has a real impact on our economy as a city. New supermarkets are reluctant to open or hire.
Even Oxford Economics agreed. In a report, they stated that this beverage tax would cost the CIty almost 1,200 jobs and a loss of almost 80 million dollars in GDP that our city needs. When I am on Council, I will be a constant voice against this tax and together - WE WILL REPEAL THE BEVERAGE TAX.
If we don't properly educate our current and future generations, we'll continue to fall behind the national average and we will be enabling poverty and quality of life to decrease in our City for decades to come. I'm a firm believer that most of the societal problems we face could be handled with a stronger emphasis on education.
Everyone agrees education is important. But, how do we make changes that can provide tangible results for decades to come?
In my opinion, it takes greater input from the parents, communities and teaching professionals who care about the outcomes. It takes a greater emphasis on trade schools, so our high school graduates are ready, willing and able to work or start their own business immediately following graduation; rather than taking on loads of debt attaining 4-year college degrees which may not be the right fit.
It takes really looking at how our schools spend our taxes dollars and eliminating inefficiencies. If the goal of spending money in our schools isn't narrowly focused on educating our children and preparing them for a bright and successful future, then we aren't spending the money we have wisely. I will be a constant voice on City Council pressing for more accountability, for more alternative programs related to trade schools and technical education and ultimately, for more results!
While I am against safe injection sites as I do believe doing drugs be it a choice or an illness should not be comfortable and or so accommodating that we encourage others from other townships and cities to come here.
However, I am all for getting together with community leaders who are out there taking part in helping Philadelphia with this crisis and work in the communities affected most by drug use to develop a comprehensive solution to our areas homelessness and drug use problem.
Philadelphia is a World Class City that is only at the beginning of reaching its true potential. As I've traveled around the globe, I couldn't help but know that Philadelphia, the birthplace of America, has the potential to be the greatest city in the world.
But, this takes real work and effort. This is a city of neighborhoods and greater emphasis needs to be placed on the working class who make this city run. We need more parks, more street cleanings, more funding and partnering with non-profit groups to beautify our neighborhoods and make them safer places to live and work.
In order to achieve this, we need to build on the successes that exist; but also, rethink how we approach the quality of life issues. For some neighborhoods, it may be cleaning up blighted properties. For others, it may mean developing a series of community gardens on abandoned lots. And, yet for others, it may mean simple street cleaning and graffiti removal.
This City we love is important to us and our families. We can't afford to do it later, or not do it at all. I will be a voice that empowers you, the residents of Philadelphia, to have the highest quality of life possible in our neighborhoods with me advocating on our behalf on City Council.

Billy Ciancaglini - Republican Mayoral Candidate
Billy was born and raised in Philadelphia and attended law school at Temple University. He became involved in political activism because of high crime rates, soaring taxes, underfunded schools, and a terrible drug epidemic.
In City Hall, Billy will bring people together to get things done: lessen our tax burden, cut wasteful government spending, and address our city's crippling drug and crime problem.
People who support Billy Ciancaglini are people like us - who live here in Philadelphia, and who represent hard work, family, and community.
If elected Mayor, he will work to create a level playing field so that everyone has access to their government - and keep working with people from the community to create more jobs, safer streets, and better schools.
Let's send someone like us to City Hall - someone who will represent a real change in direction.
Here in Philadelphia, we're looking for change in the right direction - and we need leaders who will listen to us, put Philadelphia first, and bring people together to get things done.
But the honchos at City Hall listen to special interests - not neighbors. They just bicker and don't get anything done.
We can build a better Philadelphia - where everyone's voice is heard and where people work together to strengthen our communities.
