Shop at the Shaker Store or online

The Shaker Museum, founded in 1931, marked the close of its 84th season on Oct. 12. Visitors are being thanked for their patronage in partaking of tours, programs, demonstrations and special events throughout the season at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village.

The Shaker Store, 707 Shaker Road, New Gloucester, with a full line of gifts, crafts, herbs, yarn, homemade pickles, relish and jelly, and much more, will remain open on Saturdays, 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., through Saturday, Dec. 5, which denotes the date of the annual Shaker Christmas Fair.

New to the Shakers’ website is an online store of their herbs and tea at www.maineshakers.com. Since 1799, the Sabbathday Lake Shakers have cultivated, packaged, and distributed to the public an important selection of sweet herbs and medicinal herbal teas. Following that same early tradition, now they offer a selection of gourmet culinary herbs, herbal blends, spices, herbal teas, and culinary waters that represent their long and continuing heritage. Their herbs are grown in gardens more than 200 years old, dried in a facility built in 1845, and packaged in tin canisters just like those used by their forebears throughout the 1800s.

** We wanted to make you aware, that we have changed where we purchase our shrimp. You may have heard about Human trafficking and Slavery tied to the asian shrimp industry in the news. Its awful. Here is the link if you would like to educated yourself http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2015/03/25/world/asia/ap-seafood-from-slaves.html
After we read this article, Pam and I both agreed we could not support this industry until proven that the slavery and torture stopped.
What does this mean for you:  We have found a few new choices most of them are gulf shrimp. This will make our shrimp a little more expensive then it was, but we feel that its really a no brainer. We are also making sure our Calamari and any other frozen seafood are to the best of our ability fished without the use of slaves. 
We urge you to think when you are ordering seafood out at restaurants, or buying at other locations. Cheaper often comes at a price and this is very costly to many. 
See you soon,
Steph and Pam
