PLASTIC BODY BAGS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE NATURAL BURIAL SECTION. However, if your burial does require a plastic body bag, we can sell you a plot right next to the Natural Burial section either in the woods or field section. If a Natural Burial plot has already been purchased, we will switch the plot location at no charge.
We do provide intermits during the winter months. Depending on just what has to be done, there are extra charges for things like plowing, snowblowing, digging, sanding, and salting that are given on a case by case basis at the time of requested intrement. If the ground is too frozen to dig, we poor charcoal on the plot and let it burn overnight which makes it possible to dig the next day. Sometmes we have to use propane heaters to help. If all efforts fail, we have a vault and we can store the remains until the weather clears. The video below shows s sample of this process. You can calll Cemetery Superintendent Floyd Craig at 845-658-8181 to get the additional cost measures based ont he current situation at that time.
If you wish to have your funeral home listed on our website as doing Natural Burials, please email your name, phone number, website, and approx. distance from cemetery to us at email@example.com.
