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.

 Blackberry Season

Pick your own blackberries are now available at Centennial Farms.  We have a large crop of sweet, thornless berries.  They grow in rows on a trellis so are easy to pick.  We are open Thursday through Sunday from 10:00 – 5:00.  If you wish to pick earlier or later in the day or on other days, please call 636-228-4338 to make arrangements.  We will have picked blackberries available in the market in pint and quart containers.  Please let us know if you want several quarts.  

Peaches will be available soon.

Centennial Farms will be closed on Saturday, July 31 due to a private event.
