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 hours 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 vegetables and good things made in our farm kitchen. Come visit our market in the century old timber framed barn which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
– Bob and Ellen Knoernschild, Gabe Wright
Centennial Farms is now closed for the season
Centennial Farms will open weekends for the 2015 season on Saturday May 2. Our hours will be 10 to 4 on Saturday and Sunday. We will be selling herb plants, annuals, perennials and heirloom tomato plants from our greenhouse. We will also have our own preserves and apple butter and asparagus.
IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS GOING TO BE A FANTASTIC FRUIT YEAR. We expect excellent crops of apples, blueberries, blackberries and peaches. Blueberries ripen in late June and will be available in our market. We will have pick-your-own on our sweet, thornless Triple Crown blackberries and also sell them in the market in July. Our hours will expand in July for blackberry picking.
Thank you for being a customer. This is our 46th year of selling fruit and our farm has been in operation for 194 years.
