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.

Fruits and Nuts Galore

I would have liked twice the amount of brandy. The cake was moist and bursting with fruits and nuts, and I truly enjoyed the overall flavor. That said, I will continue my search for a super strongly boozed up cake. To be fair, this was one of six fruitcakes I ordered in 2021, and none of them came close to the liquor content of those made by my mom and aunties

The one pound cake may be small but it is impossible to purchase ingredients used by the Monks for the price. To make yourself, start in October and "age" this wonderful cake for Christmas with weekly addition of brandy poured over cake. The three pound cake is my yearly treat. Found the Monks of Guadalupe years ago, tried other cakes but no comparision!

Every year I order fruitcake for my husband. It is one thing that makes the holidays for him. This year, your fruit cake was a huge hit! He loved it! While he was willing to share, he made sure he had the remaining loaf to take home! We will stick with your product in the future!

I stepped out of my box to try something new. I always order the run fruitcake. I took this to dinner for dessert. It was well received by all and was delicious, moist and filling.
