Welcome to Centennial Farms and Orchard

We are located in the historic town of Augusta, Missouri in southwestern St. Charles County. Our farm is less than an hour’s drive from most parts of St. Louis (see our directions page)

The farm has been owned and operated by our family since 1854. We represent the fourth generation and our grandson Gabe Wright, who manages the farm, represents the sixth generation. Our first orchards were planted in 1969 on what had been a grain and livestock farm.

We offer a “taste of history” along with seasonal fruit and good things made in our farm kitchen. Come visit our market in the 160-year old timber framed barn which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

– Ellen Knoernschild, Owner

Summer 2019 at Centennial Farms

Centennial Farms will open on Saturday, June 15 for blueberry picking. We will also have apple butter, preserves and honey from our hives for sale. June hours are Saturday and Sunday from 10-5. 

In July we will have peaches and pick-your-own blackberries. It is always best to call for an update on picking conditions.
