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.

Summer at Centennial Farms
Blackberry season is over and we have finished picking. There will be no peaches this year due to a late frost. Our market is open on weekends and we have our apple butter and preserves available. Honey will be available when the new crop is taken off in late July or early August. We will be open on Saturday and Sunday 12 – 4 until the end of August.
The apple season will be shorter this year since we have less than a 20% crop.
You can find our apple butter at all Dierberg’s stores.
Thanks for being a customer. We look forward to 2016, our 47th year of selling fruit and the 195th year our farm has been in operation.
