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 hours 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.

Centennial Farms will be closing for the season
This will be the last weekend to see the “Pumpkin Fantasyland” decorations at Centennial Farms in Augusta. On Monday the figures and decorations will vanish for another year and go where they hide for the winter.
We will have apples for sale but are down to two tart, long keeping late varieties, Arkansas Black and Gold Rush. We have made the last of our cider and it should still be available through the weekend.
In the market we have, in addition to apples, mini pumpkins and gourds for fall decorations, and winter squash. Our apple butter and preserves are still available and makes good Christmas presents.
We will close on weekdays from November 3 to 7 and will be open for the last time on the weekend of November 8 and 9.
