Deerfield is a quiet and small town that has seen a pretty hefty decrease in business activity in the last 50 years. Having once been a fairly popular and active village, it now looks very quiet and barren. However a there are quite a few people still living here and they are for the most part very friendly. It's a nice and safe little village with not a lot going on.

For the most part there is nothing to complain about regarding the crime and safety of Deerfield. Mostly because nothing ever happens.
Living in Michigan is hard with the constant weather lows and highs. The bugs are really bad when its hot and the back roads aren't plowed very well when its cold. I would probably not choose to live in this area again if i had a choice. I see this small town turning into a ghost town but not in the near future.
