Welcome to Prout Funeral Home, where we offer compassionate and environmentally conscious burial solutions. If you are considering a natural burial, you may have questions about the cost, availability in different states, and the possibility of burial without a casket. In this section, we will address commonly asked questions regarding natural burial in the US.

How Much Does It Cost to Have a Natural Burial in the US?

The cost of a natural burial can vary depending on several factors, including the location, cemetery fees, and the specific services chosen. Generally, natural burials tend to be more affordable compared to traditional burial methods. While it’s challenging to provide an exact figure, the cost typically ranges from a few thousand to several thousand dollars. At Prout Funeral Home, we offer Natural Burial Packages to accommodate a range of budgets. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements and receive a detailed cost estimate tailored to your needs.

What States Offer Natural Burials? 

Natural burial options are increasingly available in many states across the US. Some states, such as New Jersey, California, Florida, New York, Texas, and Washington, have a higher number of natural burial sites and cemeteries. However, the availability of natural burial grounds may vary within each state. Prout Funeral Home can assist you in identifying natural burial locations in your desired state and provide guidance on the availability and regulations associated with natural burials in that area.

A Perspective on Cost-Effective Burial Options

When it comes to cost-effective burial options, an immediate burial is often considered the most economical choice. However, we recognize that families seeking sustainable and natural options are willing to invest in a farewell that reflects their values and way of life. For them, it’s not just about the price, but about honoring their loved ones in a manner that resonates with their beliefs.

Balancing Values with Budget

We have observed that there’s some overlap between eco-conscious and cost-conscious consumers. While some individuals prioritize both environmental sustainability and cost-effectiveness, others place a higher emphasis on their values and the eco-friendliness of the options available.

A Case in Point: A Holistic Farewell

Allow us to share an inspiring example from our experiences. We recently assisted in the arrangements for a woman who lived a very holistic lifestyle, emphasizing organic living and environmentally friendly choices. She knew she wanted cremation, but she also wanted her farewell to be in harmony with her values.

She chose to be shrouded in an unbleached 100% cotton shroud, a sustainable alternative to traditional materials. Additionally, she opted for a handwoven willow casket, honoring her eco-conscious beliefs while remaining mindful of the costs involved.
