We stopped by Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village in New Gloucester, Maine to chat with Brother Arnold about their Shaker community and hosting an aid station at their farm for Farm to Fork Fondo - Maine on August 28. The beautiful 1,800-acre farmstead is home to the only three living Shakers in the world and will be offering treats to Farm to Fork Fondo - Maine participants at mile 45 of the Gran Fondo course.
Established in 1783, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village contains seventeen historic structures and continues to be a place where the Shakers live, work and worship. The Sabbathday Lake Shakers welcome visitors to experience their history and ongoing heritage through their museum, research library, craft workshops, educational programs and Sunday worship services.
