Families are expected to bury the remains of their pets. If not able to do so, please contact The Good Earth for options.


Families are not only allowed to participate, they are expected and encouraged to as part of their ritual. Families may hand dig and close their own graves at no extra charge.


Families are expected to transport the decedent to the burial ground; from the vehicle to the grave site (pallbearers); and lower the body into the ground per direction of the burial ground administration. Should this not be possible, please let us know so we can determine if alternate arrangements can be made and if so, the amount of the fee.


Payment Methods

You will never be charged for anything that is not itemized on your statement prior to burial.  Payment may be made via cash, cashier's check, or Visa credit card. I do pass on my processing fee for credit cards which is 3.5%.

The Good Earth is now offering 1 year same as cash financing on plots only with a 10% down payment with the remaining balance amortized over 12 months. Note that any balance is due prior to time of burial regardless of how many payments have been made.
 

Funeral Merchandise (sold only for immediate delivery, no pre-need)

Due to the recent change in Alabama Law, The Good Earth can now offer for sale funeral merchandise. 


“The Plain Pine Box”

A hand built casket made by artisans local to north Alabama using non-toxic glue, wooden dowels and hemp rope handles for carrying.

 

                





 


​The price of “The Plain Pine Box” is $775.00 plus tax and delivery. Delivery charge within Madison County, AL, is $1.50 per mile round trip. Please ask for pricing for delivery outside Madison County, AL.

The Good Earth offers a muslin shroud for $250; or a muslin “winding sheet” for $150. Depending on the method chosen to transport and lower the body into the grave a cotton sling which will remain in the grave is available for $200.

A simple, biodegradable cardboard casket is also available for $70. Still a very respectful way to bury your loved one, they are often decorated by family members with paintings or hand written messages. (product may differ slightly from picture)
