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

Sunday, September 11 was the final day for pick your own apples this year. A severe frost in late April severely impacted the crop. We have a few apples for sale by the pound in our market.

Our Pumpkin Fantasy Land will open on Saturday, October 1. The one week delay is due to late ripening of pumpkins. The farmstead will be decorated with pumpkin figures and you can pick your own pumpkins in the field. We have limited amounts of apples available by the pound and are finished with pick-your-own apples.

We will have apples, honey, apple butter and preserves for sale in our market. We plan to make cider later in the month.

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

Thanks for being a customer. We look forward to 2016, our 47th year of selling fruit and the 195th year our farm has been in operation.
