For Pre-Arrangements, We Welcome You To Visit Duck Run Natural Cemetery.
The first certified 100% natural burial cemetery in Virginia, Duck Run Natural Cemetery is open for you to visit from dawn until dusk every day of the year. Our pristine acreage in Penn Laird, Virginia, offers views of three mountain ranges, rolling hills covered in native Virginia vegetation, and a fishing pond. Burial lots can be marked with fieldstones and families may contribute Virginia native foliage to the master plan of the cemetery. Our scattering gardens are maintained to complement the bucolic setting and natural serenity of the cemetery. We are happy to meet you at the cemetery for a tour and to answer any questions you may have.
Keep Family And Loved Ones Together With Proximal Green Burial Lots.
Plan ahead for family and loved ones to be buried next to each other. Multiple traditional lots or renewable lots may be purchased together to secure a section of the natural cemetery. Walking trails connect the different burial sections. Enjoy the peace of knowing your family will return to the earth in a beautiful protected natural cemetery, side by side. Families and loved ones may purchase native flowers and plants to contribute to the master cemetery plan.
Culturally And Religiously Inclusive, Duck Run Natural Cemetery Works With All Faith Traditions.
When life inevitably comes to an end, honoring the deceased with the rites, rituals, and requirements of their faith tradition brings peace and closure to family and friends. We work with all faith traditions to provide the appropriate burial requirements for interment. Pre-arrangements ensure your peace of mind.
Enjoy The Natural Serenity Found When Walking Our Trails.
Our cemetery design includes larger grave spaces which provides up to 650 lots per acre, which is significantly less than the traditional 1,000 to 1,200 lots per acre found in most cemeteries. We have 113 total acres with 8.5 developed and available for purchase. Our lot configurations allow for walking trails that are mowed for easy accessibility to the gravesites. Walk through the cemetery to get a strong sense of peace and order in a pristine natural environment that appears like an arboretum rather than a cemetery.
