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.

Summer 2020

The blackberry crop is finished.  We will have a small apple crop (the result of a spring freeze).  Until then the farm is open only Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 5:00.  We have honey, preserves and apple butter to sell.

There is no admission or parking charge. We have all new attractions in our playground. Apple butter, preserves, honey and salsa will also be available in our market. We have a good supply of mums grown at Centennial Farms.

Centennial Farms has been owned by the same family for 165 years. The first owner, a Daniel Boone follower, founded the Town of Augusta after he purchased the property in 1821.
