Redwoods Monastery: Whitethorn, California
Redwoods Monastery is a small community of women monastics founded in 1962 from the Cistercian monastery of Nazareth in Belgium. Nestled among the majestic redwoods and Douglas fir of the Lost Coast of Northern California, bordered on one side by the salmon-bearing Mattole River, the sisters of Our Lady of the Redwoods live a simple monastic life in continuity with a tradition that stretches back to 1098 when the Cistercian Order was founded. Five elements characterized the vision of the early Cistercians and continue to shape Cistercian spirituality today: creative fidelity, simplicity, an accent on experience, affectus (the centrality of love) and mysticism. The sisters' main industry and source of income is their popular creamed honey.

I've always loved creamed honey. When I discovered Monastery honey I had to give it a whirl. This honey kind of dissolves on your tongue into a blur of sweetness. One of my brothers waits for his new jar of the orange flavor every year. Unbelievably delicious honey.

This orange flavor honey is divine! Our family loves all the Monastery honeys, plain and flavored and can't get enough of them. Thank you to the monks and nuns - we love your products. Bless you too!
