THE SANCTUARY BLUEBERRY FARM
A Family Friendly Pick-Your-Own Experience!
The Sanctuary Blueberry Farm is a family friendly farm, and we are renowned for our big sweet berries nourished with only natural mineral rich pond and well water and organic fertilizers. Never any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or weed killers used on our fields!
Curious about what blueberry plants look like in the spring during pollinating season? We made this video just for you so you could see the progress of the berries!
When you come to pick...
We provide the buckets for picking as well as the bags to take your treasures home in. All you need to bring is cash or credit card, good CLOSED TOE shoes (protect your feet from ants and other pests on the ground), and some sun protection like a broad brimmed hat or sunscreen. Oh, and a bottle of water would be really smart! It can get thirsty out here!
Our berries are completely chemical free--we weed by hand (our men work several hours 5 days a week to keep the fields free of weeds and the rows mulched and mowed) and we use no chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. Natural fertilizers like fish emulsion and molasses are what we feed our plants to make the SWEETEST berries! Come visit us! We believe you'll come back!
Best Picking Practices
Wear closed toe shoes
Bring hat and sunscreen
Bring water bottles
Bring insect protection
Pick ONLY the powdery deep blue berries--white, pink and green ones are not yet ripe and super SOUR
You may pick anywhere in the field you find some ripe berries. The smaller bushes often have really big sweet berries too!
Keep a good eye on small children. We have a pond and there are critters such as fire ants they can encounter
Use the tiny 2.5 lb buckets for toddlers and small children. That way if they tumble and tip their berries, they don't lose as many
Let the farmers know if you encounter anything that needs their attention
Picking Schedule and Pricing
Friday July 3, 2020 UPDATE: Farm Closed for Season
We have just walked the fields after Thursday's picking and found there are not enough ripe berries left to keep the farm open--so this is the END of our 2020 season!
We are so grateful to have made some new friends this year, and we are grateful for continued friendships with those of you who come and pick with us year after year!
Stay tuned for some fun changes for next year...we have lots of ideas to make the process go more smoothly and to offer you more value here when you come to pick!
We do have a few pints of our raw local honey left for $15 per jar. If you need a jar of honey in the next few weeks, feel free to message us and we can set up a time for you to purchase some!
You'll be hearing from us by email and on social media throughout the year as we host events and provide natural health coop purchasing options for our local community. All the best to you until next May when the berries ripen up again!

Your Blueberry Farmers
During peak picking hours we may be out in the field to greet you. If you come at a time when we are not there, check out the posted signs for instructions, grab a bucket and start picking! Then drive up to the barn and follow the signs to pay for your berries. Of course you can text or call us at 832-510-6207 with any questions!
Price for the berries is $4 per pound. That's a great deal for organically managed berries! Think of the teeny container of berries you get at the grocery store...just a few ounces--and you are getting a whole POUND for about the same price!
You pick as much as you like, and pay for what you take home. Feel free to sample while you pick. :) We don't weigh you or your children coming and going!
No pets in the fields please. Not only for the safety of other pickers, but for the danger of contamination of our soil from what the pets may leave behind (they eliminate chemicals from their food and the metabolites of medications). We take our crop purity seriously!
