Shakers are not bread makers but they are pledge takers!
Goals and objectives of the movement
The goal of the Shaker movement was to attract large American families and they had to follow the religious principles, which included celibacy, open confession of sins, common ownership of property, separation from the outside world, and a strong work ethic. The Shakers were at the height of their popularity, with more than 4,000 Believers living in 16 communities in eight states. In the mid 1800's, with fewer families joining the ranks, the Shakers began absorbing hundreds of orphans, many of whom chose to remain in the community as adults.
