It’s Good For Your Soul

Nothing relaxes your soul like getting out in nature.  And if you’ve never spent a relaxing day picking blueberries with someone you love, then you don’t know what you’re missing.  Moorhead’s Blueberry Farm is a 20 acre family-owned pick-your-own farm that has been around for 30 years. They are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Buckets, hats, sunscreen, and big spray are provided if you need them. Bring a lunch and a bottle of wine and you can relax at one of the picnic tables after a day of picking. There are also restrooms available.

It’s Good For Your Wallet

It is free to get in. The only charge is for whatever blueberries you pick. It’s around $2.50 per pound.  So this is some really cheap entertainment for families and couples. They don’t take credit cards but they do take checks, and of course cash. They have picnic tables so you can bring a lunch. This is a fun place for a unique date or a day with the kids.

The Blueberries Are Pesticide-Free

You can feel good about all the berries you will inevitably eat while picking, because Morehead’s has never sprayed any of it’s bushes with pesticides. Actually, blueberries are naturally pretty pest-free anyway.  They are not completely organic because they do use chemical fertilizer.

Only Open May – July

The season usually begins the last weekend in May and continues through mid-July.  During that time Moorhead’s is open from 7 am to dark (about 9pm)  Some seasons they have been open 7 days per week.  But during the 2014 season they are only open  Friday, Saturday, & Sunday.  Check their Facebook page to be sure.

Located Between Kingwood & The Woodlands

Moorhead’s Blueberry Farm is located off of F.M. 1314 that runs between Kingwood and The Woodlands.  Watch for the signs on 1314 and turn South on Calhoun Road into Bennette Estates.  Then you will follow the signs to the farm, which is down a winding country road that is actually in great shape. The address comes up accurately on most GPS devices.

Things to Know

It’s inevitable that you will have a blueberry fight, so wear some old clothes.  And the owners prefer you only throw the berries from the ground.

It gets a little hot during the summer, so come early for the best blueberries and the best weather.  Sunscreen, bug spray, hats, wet naps, and a towel are all good ideas.

Bring a lunch or a bottle of wine and enjoy the picnic area.
