The Oakes Farms Story
The Oakes Farms story sprouted from tragedy in the 1930s when great-grandpa William Oakes lost his leg and ultimately died when a large boat slammed into a bridge in St. Georges. State reparations for Ma Oakes and her children came in the form of a new house at the foot of a newly constructed replacement bridge. But it was 11-year old Banny Oakes who stepped forward to support the family and sold produce at the foot of the bridge to travelers crossing it.
