Concord Food Co-op
The Shakers were farmers as well as innovators and entrepreneurs. They cultivated hundreds of acres each year, producing food and related products for both the Village and the community beyond. Since becoming a museum, these vast and fertile fields have largely laid fallow. Our strategic partnership with the Concord Food Co-op is an opportunity to bring organic farming back to the Village grounds and to honor the Shakers’ agricultural legacy.
Beginning in the spring of 2015, the Concord Food Co-op has been growing organic fruits and vegetables in the historic Shaker fields. This produce and subsequent Shaker-branded products can be found at the Concord Food Co-op.
