Surprise your mom this Mother's Day

Did you know how mother's day originated? A woman named Anna Jarvis started a campaign for an official holiday to honor mothers in 1905, the year her own mother died. She even held a public memorial for her mother in 1908 in her hometown of Grafton, West Virginia.

Over the next nine years, Jarvis pushed to have the holiday officially recognized until it began to be celebrated in most US states. In 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day an official holiday to take place the second Sunday of May.

Jarvis vision of the holiday was the celebration of the personal, individual connection between a mother and her children. So, if you'd like to go that route, there are plenty opportunities in Foxburg to nurture that bond while having a great time.

Especially in this social lockdown atmosphere, consider taking your mom out for a nature stroll. The Foxburg bike trail makes a neat path accented with natural springs and a waterfall along the 2.5 mile stretch. Here's a recent video of the waterfall at about 1.5 miles into the bike trail. Listen to the sound with your eyes closed for a meditative experience.

While in town, visit the winery for wine sampling, take out a great meal from The Allegheny Grille or a pizza from Foxburg Pizza, stay a night or two at the Foxburg Inn, and grab a box of chocolate or a latte to go at our shop. Check out our selection of goodies we have curated especially for Mother's Day.

Although, all retail shops and the hotel in Foxburg are allowed to be open, we have decided to continue our winter hours. So, please plan to visit us on Friday thru Sunday between noon and six 'o clock. Better yet, place your order online and pick it up when you visit in the weekend.

While in public areas, be sure to respect social distancing recommendations put forth by the state of Pennsylvania so everyone can have a good time while keeping safe.

Must have!

This bark is very, very good. I bought both dark and milk. Highly recommend!


Turtle bark with delicious caramel, pecans, and milk chocolate. What's not to like? They have the right combination and the right proportion. Great chocolatiers.
