The Sanctuary Blueberry Farm
A Family Friendly
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!
Picking Schedule and Pricing
Last Weekend of Picking!
Today is Saturday, July 2, and we had a great turnout for Friday and Saturday picking! We do still plan to be open on Sunday morning from 7 to 11 AM--just know that this will be the LAST day of picking for the season, and the berries are not as plentiful as they were earlier, so plan a little extra time for picking.
Remember for comfort and temperatures, the earlier in the morning you come the better!
We are a pick-your-own farm and you are welcome to bring your own buckets or containers for picking, OR you can purchase buckets from us in 3 different sizes depending on how many blueberries you plan to pick.
Buckets are $2, $3, and $5 depending on size (quart, gallon, & 2 gallon), and blueberries are $4.50 per pound. We accept credit cards and cash—no checks please.
There is no entrance fee to the farm—only the price of the berries you pick and the buckets if you purchase those from us.
Wear closed toe shoes to protect your feet! A hat, sunscreen and a wagon for small children are great ideas. NO PETS in the fields please!
We are excited to get to see you all on this last day of the season, and please call or text us or leave us a voicemail (832-510-6207) if you have any questions!
It has been a fun season--if a little different than usual--and we look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
When you come to pick...
Bring your own picking containers from home or purchase buckets from us and re-use them each time you come! We accept cash or credit cards--no checks please. Please consider wearing good CLOSED TOE shoes (to protect your feet from ants and other pests on the ground), and some sun protection like a broad brimmed hat or sunscreen. We do have water for sale--or bring your own. Do stay hydrated in the Texas summer heat!
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
We will direct you to the best places to pick for the day, however, 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 small 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
