Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Trinity. For years the monks made and sold their special brand of whole wheat bread. In recent years it became necessary to discontinue this industry. However, the monk who for many years was the baker has developed a recipe for home owners to bake their own whole wheat bread from the 2-grain cereal now produced at the monastery
