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.

Apples are ripe at Centennial Farms

We have picked our first apples – Gala and Honeycrisp – and they are for sale in the market. We have an excellent apple crop this year. Depending on the weather we will probably start pick your own next weekend, Saturday, August 24. Apple butter, preserves and honey will also be available in our market.

Centennial Farms will be open Thursday through Sunday from 10:00 – 5:00. If you wish to pick earlier or later in the day or on other days please call 636-228-4338 to make arrangements.
