The monastery Jampot Bakery. It's closed for the winter. Here's how it looks in the summer (photo credit Buellwood Weaver and Fiber Guild):
And here's a picture of the inside during last year's season (photo courtesy Jampot Online).

The monks do a good trade and, of course, rely on it for income. Before coming here everyone said I should visit the Jampot (I think they must have forgotten that it would be closed in the winter). So do go on line and see what tickles your fancy! You can read some reviews here.
