At the Gift Shop
The best price for Abbey products, as well as the best way to support the Abbey, can always be found at the Monastery Gift Shop.
In the Gift Shop we also offer many books and gift items, many of which are made at our brother and sister monasteries, as well as some limited edition items from our bakery on-site which are brand-new this year! Come away for a visit, short or long, to the beautiful monastery grounds, pray with us, as well as get your Monastery Products directly from the hands of the monks who make them!
For those who are long-distance or unable to travel, shipping is now once again available, exclusively through the Bakery Webstore. We cannot take mail-orders by phone, mail, or fax.
Wholesale – see the bottom of this page.
GOOD NEWS! Our famous fruitcakes are once again available.
If you’re local or able to make a trip to visit us, we would appreciate a visit the monastery in person and you can get your fruitcake at the best price directly from the Gift Shop. These sales provide more support to the Abbey than sales through our website, as there is no third party involved.
Again, due to the extra costs and the necessity of a third party to help with shipping, these web-sales do not provide the same support to the monks as fruitcakes purchased directly from our Gift Shop. They are also priced higher on the internet, and shipping for these substantial fruitcakes will be another $9+ each.
The Gift Shop offers a new, smaller, 1.5 lb loaf fruitcake as well as the traditional 2.25 lb round fruitcake.
There are a VERY LIMITED NUMBER of 2.25 lb fruitcakes VIA WEB ORDER. Again, shipping is only available while quantities last and only in the traditional 2.25 lb size. We will NOT BE TAKING PHONE ORDERS, MAIL ORDERS, OR FAXED ORDERS; please visit our webstore at monasteryfruitcake.org in order to have a fruitcake shipped to you.
Take time to look at our delicious creamed honeys and the truffles before completing your fruitcake purchase through the Bakery Webstore.
Creamed honeys are kept well-stocked, both at our Gift Shop and in our Bakery Webstore.
Monastery Creamed Honey is made from locally sourced honey in Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our creamed honey is 100% natural–we cannot call it “raw” because bees wings and honeycomb pieces have been removed; it is filtered, but otherwise completely unprocessed, so as to preserve all the health benefits of raw honey. It is naturally crystallized and has the texture of butter, so it is spreadable. The shelf life is indefinite, and the pure natural flavor (with or without one of the other natural flavors we add) is something you’ll love!
FRATERS (CHOCOLATE-COVERED FRUITCAKE) – found exclusively in the Gift Shop
For those who used to love these delicious treats, we are trying to keep a limited quantity available in a new bite-size muffin shape, but you’ll have to visit the Gift Shop soon, because they’re selling quickly!
EXPERIMENTAL PRODUCTS – found exclusively in the Gift Shop
In addition to Fruitcake and Creamed Honey products, we are experimenting with limited edition products. These include a Monastery Peanut Butter and a Peanut butter/Honey blend Fr. Robert dubbed as Bee-Nut Butter. Experimental flavors of Creamed Honey may also be available in the Gift Shop.
MONASTERY TRUFFLES are produced specially for us at DeFlurris Fine Chocolates in nearby Martinsburg, WV.
Those who are interested in bulk discounts for large orders of Fruitcake and/or Creamed Honey, for shipment to one address, should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Fruitcake discounts primarily available in the 1.5lb loaf-size.)
