Since the late 1920s, Mount Ararat Cemetery has been proud to be among the first to serve Farmington residents as a primary internment, funeral and cemetery provider. Regulated by the state of New York, Mount Ararat Cemetery is one of the oldest in the region as well as one of the most beautiful.
Exquisite brick and wrought iron gateways and structures throughout the property give a sense of dignity, strength and permanency to area visitors. Sprawling over dozens of acres of lawns, the property is filled with trees, shrubs, and floral arrangements that inspire, comfort, and soothe.
Mount Ararat Cemetery takes pride in the fact that it offers an alternative to conventional Jewish cemetery services. Private family plots and flush-to-ground memorials also offer markers of granite or bronze, with the emphasis on landscaping and spiritual beauty. Embellished with a variety of explicit shaded and floral arbors, rustic nooks and exquisite landscaping, the property is one of the most beautiful in the area. Offering a modern Jewish cemetery evoking a sense of tranquility, dignity and grace, Mount Ararat Cemetery meets the needs of Jewish residents in Farmington and surrounding communities that blends traditional with modern, old and new.
The sprawling acres of the property are developed in sections with easily accessible driving paths, walkways, and malls that offer visitors the chance to truly escape into a gently wooded and tranquil environment to honor and memorialize their loved ones. Open Sunday through Friday from morning to early evening, staff at Mount Ararat Cemetery offer compassionate, friendly and helpful services to visitors.
Mount Ararat Cemetery is located in a triangle of land bordered by the Southern State Parkway to the north, County Road 109, or Farmingdale Road, to the south, and County Road 3 to the east. The Long Island location, between West Babylon and downtown New York City, is one of the most beautiful cemetery property locations in New York.
