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

Apples at Centennial Farms

We will open pick-your-own apples on Saturday, August 18 with Gala, Ruby Jon and Empire. Our crop is very small this year. Spring frosts destroyed most of the crop and the drought has not helped. We will have pick-your-own only on a limited number of weekends.

Thank you for being a customer. This is our 49th year of selling fruit and our farm has been in operation for 197 years.
