Other:  The New Skete is a Orthodox-Catholic community of 3 Monasteries. There are monks, nuns and couples/companions separate Monasteries all following the same monastic lifestyle.  
The monks breed, raise, and (with help from both the nuns and the companions) train German shepherd dogs, as well as training all breeds at their kennels. They have published two highly acclaimed books on dog training: How To Be Your Dog's Best Friend and The Art of Raising a Puppy.
The nuns operate New Skete Kitchens, offering their nationally famous cheesecakes, fruitcake, biscotti, muffins and cookies. The nuns also paint and sell religious icons, t-shirts and sweat-shirts imprinted with handsome renderings of the New Skete German Shepherd, as well as exquisite cards of both icons and fine art photography.
New Skete Farms produce gourmet food products from their aromatic Smokehouse high atop Two Top Mountain, near Cambridge, NY. New Skete also offers hospitality to visitors and pilgrims at their guesthouse.
Over three decades, the monks have perfected their curing and smoking techniques to prepare foods with greater tenderness, more robust flavor and less fat and shrinkage when cooked. There is no added water. The monks prepare and pack their products with loving attention, so take the time to savor every bite.
The communities also offer hospitality to visitors and pilgrims.
