About Old Oak Estate Farm


Situated in the township of Smithton, in the county of St. Clair, in the state of Illinois, Avae Briesacher heritage farm has been in the same family for 165 years.   It is a Centennial and Sesquicentennial Heritage Farm registered with the Illinois Department of Agriculture, thus giving Avae Briesacher its agricultural heritage status.

Located on the cusp of rural and urban landscapes this relaxing and still metropolitan country estate farm is comprised of 31+ acres in which only two are used for residential needs.  It was purchased by Johann Georg Briesacher in 1854 from John Teter, but the land that Avae Briesacher sits has a long history and timeline.
