The Shakers have cultivated their land since 1783. The hedgerows are piled with stones picked from the croplands each spring. These naturally beautiful food slabs are created from polished slices of Shaker fieldstones deposited in the earth by glaciers eons ago. No two stones are alike and each provides a striking presentation for beverages, sliced cheese, hors d'oeuvres
, meat, fruit, bread, and more. Also use as a trivet, under potted plants, and atop vanities for soap, cosmetics and more. Slabs are typically multicolor with striking combinations of minerals. Stamped on the reverse with the name: "Shaker Village, New Gloucester, ME." The stone arrives in an American Stonecraft stamped box with a hangtag showing every detail about the stone and its personal serial number.
Produced for Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village by American Stonecraft
in Lowell, MA.

Measures approximately 13" at longest length. A gorgeous serving piece or the best charcuterie board- you can even pop it in the freezer before using to keep your cheese cold.
