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.

Summer at Centennial Farms

We have finished with peach and blackberry season for this year and are closed. We plan to reopen on Aug. 19 for early apple sales. Dependent on the weather, pick your own apple season will start on Aug. 26 with Ruby Jon, an early Jonathan. We have an excellent crop this year. We are taking reservations for school tours for apple picking.

You can find our apple butter at all Dierberg’s stores.
