Digging graves as part time gig to farming

There`s a entertaining You Tube channel "Cole the Cornstar". A young guy that goes to school, farms with his dad and they have a side business of digging graves.  I guess you can make $30,000 doing that and Cole isn`t the only farmer I know that`s a grave digger.   So, it must fit well with farming.

Re: Digging graves as part time gig to farming

This observation is probably in bad taste but that never really stopped me before.

I think I will steer clear of grave digging as a "side" job.

Since my wife works at a nursing home who knows what I may get accused of.

Uff-dah!   The grave digger/farmer I know says that there`s more and more cremations every year due to high burial expense.  But that`s getting high too transporting the deceased and $400 for the cardboard box ect.  I`ve never been to a graveside deal with a cremation deal, but I guess they drill a posthole and place the urn thingy in the bottom of the hole and put the patch of grass over it.  For that all you`d need is a loader tractor with a 3pt posthole digger and a spade.
