Alfie Oakes is a Floridian farmer and businessman with an estimated net worth of $50 million. His business venture, Oakes Farms Food & Distribution Services, specializes in the production, packaging, and distribution of fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and more across the United States. Oakes’s net worth has increased since the beginning of the year and is expected to continue to increase in the future.
Born in Naples, Florida, Oakes’ family has a long history of agricultural and agribusiness. He attended Purdue University on a football scholarship before returning to the family farm. He began brokering wholesale deals and establishing relationships with grocery stores as his business grew. He also expanded his company into a 75,000-square-foot megamarket called Seed to Table.
Oakes’ political views have become increasingly controversial. He is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and an outspoken critic of Black Lives Matter, the media, and the government’s handling of COVID-19. His defiance of local mask mandates has riled some, but his screeds are a hit with others, particularly in the small town of Naples, where Oakes’ popularity and fame have been fueled by social media.
In April 2022, Oakes was arrested for refusing to provide ID when cashing in casino chips. He resisted arrest and was handcuffed by Seminole County police officers. Oakes was released on a $25 cash bond. He has been active on Facebook, where he posts about his business and his political views. His Facebook page has over 17,000 followers.
