The Haymaze is something Spence’s Farm is famous for. I first went into a haymaze at my Uncle Joe’s farm camp when I was under 10 years old.
One day I told a camper, no flashlights are allowed in the haymaze, that would destroy the purpose of getting braver. That night his mom noticed no night light on, which he always had to have on. She questioned him and he responded “mom I don’t need a night light anymore, I got braver in the dark by going through the dark in the haymaze.
If it is too scary, we say “ask someone, make a friend, and have them lead you through, hold on to their foot till you get brave”.
