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 and Pumpkins at Centennial Farms

Hayrides available this weekend!

We have for sale in the market Arkansas Black and Granny Smith apples from our orchard across the lake. Centennial Farms will be open on Monday, Oct. 8, Columbus Day, from 10:00 – 5:00.

Apple picking is finished for 2018. We hope to have a better crop next year. Our Pumpkin Fantasyland is open with storybook and farm-themed life-size figures. There are hundreds of pumpkins around the barn and out in the pick-your-own patches. There is a playground with a play tractor, fort, climbing wall and other features. Admission to the farm and playground is free. On Oct 13 and 14 there will be hayrides around the farm. In our farm market we have mini pumpkins and gourds, apple butter, preserves, honey and apples.

Thank you for being a customer. This is our 49th year of selling fruit and our farm has been in operation for 197 years.
