Abbey of Our Lady of Guadalupe: Lafayette, Oregon

Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey is a monastery of Cistercian (Trappist) monks who are devoted to a life of contemplation in a cloistered atmosphere. The Abbey began in April 1948 at Pecos, New Mexico, as a foundation established by Our Lady of the Valley Community in Rhode Island (precursor to St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts). In March 1955 the monks, not finding farming sufficiently yielding at that high altitude, sold the property to the Benedictine monks and moved to Oregon. In recent years the Community has numbered between 35 and 40 members, who range in age from their twenties to their nineties.

Trappists are committed to self-sufficiency, and strive to live solely by the work of their own hands. To this end, Our Lady of Guadalupe is home to several small industries: they harvest 900 acres of Douglas fir, operate a small bookbinding shop and a large wine warehouse serving neighboring wineries, and, since 1982, they have baked their popular Trappist Abbey Fruitcakes.

My mother, to whom we sent the cake, said it was rich and delicious--a small piece at a time, with tea or coffee, was a real treat. She also said the bakers didn't stint on the brandy! Thank you all.

I'm the Only in Our Hosuehold Who Likes Fruitcake
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Nov 29, 2015  |  By Stan
Since I'm the only one in our home who likes fruitcake, every November I order the one pound "Trappist Abbey Our Lady of Guadalupe" fruitcake for my myself. I'm careful to enjoy it for a while, so I cut a piece only about 1/4" thick have it for about a month. It's the best, so moist and "heavyweight" with all the good fruits and walnuts of a delectable cake.

I've been purchasing fruit cake for my mom from several "brand" name gourmet stores. This year I purchased from Monastery Greetings and my mom said this was the best fruit cake she's ever tasted. I'll definitely be purchasing from Monastery Greetings again.

Dried fruit-Candied fruit
Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Review star icon Jan 3, 2016  |  By Jody S.
It is probably my own fault but I read the description and assumed dried fruit meant dried fruit, not candied fruit. I should have looked more closely at the picture. Would be great if I liked candied fruit but I don't. However, it is a good moist cake.

This fruitcake was the best I've had since I was a child when each Christ- mas we were given a special homemade brandy fruitcake. Next time I will buy a 2 or 3 lb. cake.

Best fruitcake ever! We were not able to find a really good one for decades. The company we dealt with cheapened the product to something dry and mostly cake.

It has become our family tradition to order this fruitcake for many years. It is the closest to my great-great grandmother's recipe that we have found. We always wait to slice it on Christmas morning after all the presents are open.Just wouldn't be Christmas without it.

Really good fruitcake!

I really love this fruitcake and you could actually taste the brandy. It is so rich that I would have only a very small piece each night. I purchased my second Abbey's fruitcake from Amazon. For some reason the one I bought directly from the Abbey's online store tasted better...not sure why. Anyway, I highly recommend this cake and well worth the price.

This is the only fruitcake I will buy. The balance of flavors and density of fruit is perfect and the liquor is a plus. I buy it for friends and I buy it for myself. You won't be disappointed!

I just don't like fruitcake, that is until I bought the one lb. one. So good I hated to have to share it. Will buy again for sure, and not just around the holidays.
