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

Apples at Centennial Farms

Apples are ripening at Centennial Farms and we have Honey Crisp and Gala available in the market. We will start pick your own apples on Saturday August 29 with Jonathan and Ruby Jon, an early ripening Jonathan. Golden Delicious and Red Delicious will be ready about September 12. Check our web site for the latest information.

In our market we have our own apple butter, preserves and honey. In addition we will have other kinds of preserves, pickles and salsas that are made for us.

We are open at the farm daily 10 to 5 and Sunday 11 to 5. We will also be selling at the Maplewood Farmers Market located at Schlafly Brewery on Wednesday 4 to 7.

Thank you for being a customer. This is our 46th year of selling fruit and our farm has been in operation for 194 years.
