End of summer sales and barbeques may come to mind when you think of Labor Day, but the meaning of the holiday is more significant. Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 honoring the contributions of working-class Americans.

For years working conditions were severe.  Employees often worked 60-70 hours a week with little to no time off. During the 19th century Labor Movement, workers fought for fundamental protections that we are accustomed to now. Overtime pay, workers’ compensation, child labor laws, and sick leave are among those protections.

Social and economic movements in our country benefit from the strength, growth and prosperity created by working Americans.  Labor Day pays tribute to these vital contributions.

Celebrate your contributions and the contributions of your fellow Americans with one of our classic Labor Day favorites.

Dutch Apple Pie

Nothing says all-American comfort better than homemade Apple Pie.

Made from scratch with five freshly peeled and diced apples and oatmeal crumble topping. It is flavorful without being overpowering. Don’t forget to pair with a scoop of ice cream on top!

Lemon Meringue Pie

Light and fluffy meringue paired with a cool lemon filling is not only a classic, but an anticipated refresher for summer get-togethers.  Not in the mood for lemon?  We also have chocolate and coconut meringue pies available for order.

Strawberry Torte

If you are looking for an indulgent Labor Day dessert, a strawberry torte is a perfect option. Vanilla buttercream tops four layers of alternating sweet strawberry filling and yellow cake. Topped with bright red glazed strawberries, this is the rock star of the Labor Day dessert table.
