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, Owners

Pumpkin Fantasyland is Open at Centennial Farms

Oct 14 – 15 will be the last weekend for apple picking. We still have a good supply of Fuji apples but only scattered amounts of other varieties.
Our pick-your-own pumpkin patch is open with an excellent crop of large pumpkins with beautiful stems. We also have picked pumpkins available in front of the barn. There are many new figures in our Pumpkin Fantasyland. There is no admission charge and the playground is free.

Please note that there are no gas stations in the town of Augusta. Please be sure to fill up before your visit!

You can find our apple butter at all Dierberg’s stores.
