Aldergrove Caskets workshop

Carolina Casket Makers Collective (CCMC) believes in the beauty and simplicity of a 'plain pine box' and strives to provide caskets directly to families. 

We believe families should have choices and reclaim end-of-life ceremonies, whether they're at home by the garden or in a funeral home. We also believe families shouldn't spend enormous amounts on bells and whistles, if all they want is a plain pine box.  

Our handcrafted vessels are simple, but they are made to respect the Earth and honor each departing Life with dignity.

Our caskets are certified by the Green Burial Council.
