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 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
Pumpkins at Centennial Farms
We have finished apple picking for the season but have apples for sale in the market. We have our Pumpkin Fantasyland displays up and pumpkins for sale or you can pick your own in the fields. We will have cider for sale. The farm fun playground is open and there is no admission charge.
In our market we have our own apple butter, preserves and honey. In addition we will have pickles and salsas that are made for us.
Thank you for being a customer. This is our 46th year of selling fruit and our farm has been in operation for 194 years.
