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

Pick Your Own Apples

This weekend, September 18 and 19, might be the last weekend for apple picking. Our crop was small this year because of the April 27 frost. We will be opening the Winesap and Arkansas Black and also still have some Jonathan and Fuji.

We have picked some pumpkins and the pick-your-own patch is open. We have put up most of our Halloween displays. There is no admission or parking charge.

We also have large, beautiful mums in six colors.
