The eighth of 10 children, Sanders is a fourth-generation farmer. She cultivates peaches and vegetables with her brother, on Sanders Peach Farm and Roadside Market, located in Filbert, South Carolina. In the video created to celebrate her 2011 Craig Claiborne Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southern Foodways Alliance, Sanders tells how her father, a rural school teacher, purchased the land in approximately 1915 and began successfully cultivating peaches in the early 1920s.
