Welcome to Oakfield, NY


The town of Oakfield is in north-central Genesee County, bordered to the north by Orleans County, to the south by Batavia, to the east by Elba and to the west by the town of Alabama. Oakfield also contains the village of Oakfield and the hamlet of East Oakfield. Dairy and vegetable farms and a number of farm stands can be found throughout the town, which remains mostly agricultural. Oak Orchard Creek, a popular fishing spot, flows across the north part of the town, and the Oak Orchard Wildlife Management Area, a conservation area, also is in northern Oakfield.


The town has a variety of small businesses, such as a grocery store, flower shop, ice cream shop and pharmacy. For a wider variety of shopping, residents take a short drive to Batavia, where you’ll find retailers like Walmart, Target, Kmart and Sears, and supermarkets like Top’s Friendly Markets. Batavia also is where the regional hospital, United Memorial Medical Center, is based
