An order of monks who don't watch TV or listen to the radio are now offering their baked goods for sale on the Internet.

Bread has been produced at the Abbey of the Genesee in Piffard, N.Y., south of Rochester, for a half-century.

Brother Paul Richards says thousands of loaves are baked at the monastery each week for supermarkets in Buffalo, Syracuse, Binghamton and Erie, Penn.

Monks' Bread fans from outside the region already can place orders using a toll-free phone number, and online ordering was available over the holidays for special items.

Brother Paul says within the next two or three weeks, the ordering system should be fully functional on the Monks' Bread Web site.
