Oakes Farm www.oakesfarm.com
The Oakes Family has been involved in farming for three generations in the Corryton community. After years of growing tobacco and raising beef cattle, the Oakes began growing daylilies, a hobby which has grown into a nationwide mail-order nursery, Oakes Daylilies. The Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch at Oakes Farm is a joint venture for Ken Oakes and David Black, University of Tennessee graduates and brothers-in-law. Oakes Farm was the recipient of the 2001 “Farmer of the Year” award for Knox County. 2014 will be our 14th year producing a maze, and we look forward to another great year. Oakes Farm has been featured in many media stories, both regionally and nationally. The Trail of Doom, Knoxville’s largest and longest-running haunted attraction, features a haunted corn field, haunted woods, and many surprising elements
