About Oakes Farm:

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. 2014 brings some major changes to the Trail of Doom. There should be more screams than ever coming from the fields this year. The Trail of Doom consists of three separate haunted attractions.

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. Added to the Oakes family operations in 2004 is Paradise Garden Nursery which sells a wide range of specialty plants. Most of these plants are grown right here in East Tennessee. Some of the plants offered are grown by specialists in their "fields" for Paradise Garden. 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. It is located in the scenic Corryton community in North Knox County, on Corryton Road between Emory Road and Tazewell Pike.

About Corn Mazes:
Mazes and labyrinths have intrigued people for many generations. The corn maze craze has exploded over the last few years throughout the United States and the world, with several hundred mazes expected to be open around the country this year. Corn mazes are designed to be works of art when viewed from the air, and challenging fun at ground level.
