Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village

Agritourism Specialty

With 17 buildings and 1750 acres of land, Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village is home to the only active Shaker Community in the world and is a National Historic Landmark. The Shakers have been farming since 1783. See Scottish highland cattle, sheep, bees, orchards, gardens and 1830's barns. The Shaker Museum provides guided tours, volunteer opportunities, workshops, and special events.

Since 1799, the Sabbathday Lake Shakers have cultivated, packaged, and sold to the public the most popular varieties of sweet herbs and medicinal teas.  Following that same early tradition, today we offer a selection of gourmet culinary herbs, herbal blends, spices and herbal teas that represent our long and continuing heritage. Our 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 our forbears throughout the 1800s. Our herbal products represent our continuing commitment to supply our customers with products of high quality and value.
