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
Apples are ripening. We have Gala for sale in our market now and will have Ruby Jon by August 27. Because of a small crop (frost in April), we will be open for pick your own just three weekends, August 27 & 28, September 3 and 4, and Sept 10 and 11. We will have another weekend of picking if any apples are left. We will be open for apple sales during the week but not for picking. Jonathan and Ruby Jon can be picked Aug. 27, 28, Sept 3 and 4th. Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Jonagold can be picked the following weekend, Sept 10-11. These and other varieties will be for sale in the market while they last.
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.
