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.

Apple and Pumpkin Season at Centennial Farms
Centennial farms will be open daily until October 31. We have a good crop of pumpkins to pick in the field. Pumpkins, gourds and mini pumpkins are available in our market, along with our own apple butter, preserves and honey. We have apples for sale by the pound, but no apples left for picking. Our hours are 10-5 daily and 11-5 on Sunday.
Our Pumpkin Fantasyland and pick-your-own pumpkin patch is open for the season. Our farmstead is decorated with full-size figures of farm people, storybook characters, aliens and much more.
October is a nice time to visit Augusta, with the trees changing color on the hills and great weather. The shops, restaurants and wineries are open and there are church dinners almost every Sunday.
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.
