AD MAKEPEACE aggregate mining operations Using the motto “Inspired by Nature”

For over 15 years, across its vast landholdings in Southeastern Massachusetts, AD Makepeace has destroyed forests, endangered species of plants and animals, threatened our sole source aquifer, destroyed Native American cultural sites, and undermined climate resiliency. Makepeace extracts sand and gravel from throughout the region to supply its aggregate material sales and distribution operation Read Custom Soils in Carver, MA.

Other large cranberry bog owners are engaged in the same operations: sand mining under the ruse of “agricultural operations” or “site preparation” for large ground mounted solar installations. Still other companies use the ruse of a “subdivision” to extract massive volumes of sand and gravel, taking down some of the highest hills in the region.

We are here to stop this destruction and protect what is left for future generations.
