This is very over-the-top and biased. Let me tell you something. I myself am a teenager and Spences farm is my home. It is the one place I have always been able to go to if I need a smile. It has never been a place of danger. I can understand that people have been quick to judge spence. I too felt the same way when I first met him. He came across as strange but I gave him a chance. I cannot tell you how much I have learned from him. From making jam, to overcoming my fear of chickens, to becoming a horseback rider. Sure, he comes off as strange at first, many people do. It is unfair to leave it at that. Spence has never come at me in a way that would suggest sexual desires. I have had many other teenage friends there who have never been in a position with spence where they have felt sexually threatened. Spence is purely just not that kind of person. I have been at Spences farm for 10 years. When I was a kid, my parents and I were very pleased at the safety at the farm. That has never changed. It is a wonderful place to be and I love it there. Even when I was in a hard financial situation, spence welcomed me to the farm. I am appalled at the bias voice in this article. Spences farm is a second home to me. I will always cherish my time there.
