Bought in July of 1854 by Georg Briesacher, a native of France, and passed down through six generations, Old Oak Estate Farm is still "Growing Up History". It is a registered Sesquicentennial Family Heritage Farm with the Illinois Department of Agriculture.
Today, Old Oak Estate Farm, is Growing Up in History, by stewarding the community of the history that once was here. Come 2011, Old Oak Estate Farm will Grow Up a little bit more as we become more apart of the community by offering heirloom varieties of produce to our local community through a ministry program called, "Growing Up Heirlooms", in which we offer shares of fruits and vegetables that our ancestors used to eat. These fruits & vegetables are called heirlooms because they are genetically "nature made" and not "genetically modified" (GMO) foods that are seeded through big ag-industry conglomerates.
This farm features an organic ministry program, called "Growing Up Heirlooms" in which it provides organic heirlooms varieties of fruits and vegetables to the local communities.
A deep and growing genealogy database of ancestors to Old Oak Estate Farm and the surrounding community is featured on their website for free.
You can order promotional products that are earth-friendly or made with recyclable materials through the website. All proceed go to farm sustainability and education programs.
