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.

I've been buying the Brandy Fruitcake from Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery for almost 10 years. Also, I've tried many others from both religious organizations and professional bakeries. To my taste, nothing can compare. This fruitcake is rich tasting, packed with fruit and aged to perfection. Besides myself. I've also been sending this fruitcake to friends as gifts (fruitcake lovers like me) and they, too, are amazed at how it brings back memories of their mom's fruitcake. In my opinion, there's none better.

Great and Expensive Fruitcake

Very nice and flavorful fruitcake. It is much smaller than I expected - I don't know, I thought a 1 lb cake would be bigger but it isn't. Makes sense though it is a dense cake. Enjoy.

Excellent - as usual

While the fruitcake was excellent as it has bee every time that i have ordered it, I do not believe that the price and the size of the "1 lb. fruitcake" were compatible! When the fruitcake was left at my door, I looked at the rather large package and was really excited about what was inside. But then I opened the box to find a smaller box - about a 3" cube - inside. Total disappointment about the size in relation to the cost! However, as my review title states, the fruitcake was excellent (even though it was so small).

My husband is in Home Hospice Care and had a taste for a fruit cake. I knew, and wanted to get him the Best. Only one is the Trappist Abby Fruit Cake! I used to sell them in a Gift Shop I managed. I and thank for for the expedited shipment so he could have it by Christmas. His enjoyment of such a simple thing was wonderful to see. Thank you. I would & will recommend this fruit cake to everyone, as well as, Monastery Greetings God Bless You!

Fruitcake is very dense with fruit and nuts. Cake is moist and you can taste the brandy. I've been buying the one pound and three pound size for a few years now. It's a Christmas tradition for me. I'll be back next Christmas season. Cheers!

Sent this to a beautiful 98 yr old friend who always gets a fruitcake for Christmas. I sent this to her for a Halloween treat! She was so excited to receive it and just raved about it. Will definitely purchase again. Thank you for making it so easy and for the quick delivery!

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!
