About Oakes Farm

The Oakes Family has lived and farmed in the Corryton community for three generations. After years of growing tobacco and raising beef cattle, the Oakes began growing daylilies in the 1970s, a hobby which has grown into a nationwide mail-order nursery, Oakes Daylilies.

In 1999, Dena Oakes took her small kids to a local pumpkin patch, had a great time, and came home with the idea of starting one. Two years later, in 2001, Oakes Farm began. Time flies, and while it’s hard for us to believe, 2016 will be our 16th year in operation.

Attractions over the years

The first year, attractions included the corn maze, hayrides to the pumpkin patch, and a hay maze. Over the years, we’ve added numerous attractions including giant slides, an animal exhibit, pedal cars, bouncing pillow, gem mining, sand play area… These days, we see families come and spend the whole day playing on the many attractions.

Food on the farm

Our first concession was in our newly-built barn, in a space about the size of a large closet. After expanding that space a couple of times, we added two separate buildings, Grammy’s Sweets and Treats, offering homemade fudge and ice cream, and Pappy’s Fry Shack, offering all things fried. We also started making our own kettle corn, which is fun to watch being made, and difficult to stop eating once you start.

Educational field trips, church and business groups

Each year we host thousands of area school kids for fun and educational field trips. We also host many church and business groups, who enjoy coming out and having a good time together.

The haunted maze

From our first year, we offered a haunted maze, which took different forms over the years as we figured out the best way to scare. Eventually, it took on a name of its own, the Trail of Doom. We had a ton of fun with the haunt, but decided to close it after the 2015 season.
