Traditional Lots Secure Your Place In Our Lush Cemetery For Eternity.
Become part of a beautiful natural landscape that is protected by an irrevocable trust. Green burial principles are embedded in the Duck Run Natural Cemetery deed, effectively protecting this land from ever being developed. Traditional lots offer dedicated spaces for green burial. Fieldstones provide demarcation of specific sites, with maintained trails through the cemetery for visitors. You may purchase a native plant or flower to contribute to the master cemetery plan in remembrance of your loved one. We have several designated areas around the cemetery lots in which you may have us plant the native item of your choice. It is with our great understanding that memorializing a loved one is very important and we want to guide you through that process.
Renewable Lots Offer Sustainable Green Burial Solutions In The United States.
The first 100% natural cemetery in Virginia, Duck Run Natural Cemetery offers 75-year renewable lots. You contract with the cemetery to lease a renewable lot for 75 years, after which the lot is once again available for another person to lease for a natural burial. A 75-year lease ensures complete decomposition, as well as affords roughly 4 generations of family to visit the lot marked with a dedicated fieldstone, if chosen to do so.
