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.

Pumpkins at Centennial Farms

Centennial Farms is now closed for the season. We will open again in late Spring with blackberries, peaches and vegetables followed by apples and pumpkins in the fall.

In the meantime look for our apple butter at Dierberg’s stores. We will also be selling apple butter; preserves and honey during the Augusta Christmas Walks on December 4 and 11 at the Augusta Visitor Center from 5:00 to 10:00. Over 1000 luminaries light the way through town, leading visitors to the shops and galleries. Food vendors, restaurants, wineries and brewery pull out all the stops to entice the visitor with traditional holiday fare. Ride the antique trolley around town and join in the scavenger hunt. Bring the kids because Santa will be visiting.

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.
