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 is now closed for the year. We will reopen in June with blueberries followed by blackberries and peaches in July. Check our website for more updates.
We thank all of you who came this year when our apple crop was small but our pumpkin season was the best ever. We can only hope for a mild winter and a spring without late frosts. Looking forward to seeing you next year.
You can find our apple butter at all Dierberg’s stores.
Thanks for being a customer. We look forward to 2017, our 48th year of selling fruit and the 196th year our farm has been in operation.
