Hatfield Reviews

Hatfield is and will always be my home. I have lived here my whole life and have some of my best memories here. I have grown up here, and have gotten to watch my siblings grow up here too. I love the small town feel, where everybody knows everybody. With just 3,000 people, if you're looking for a small and tight knit community, Hatfield is where you need to be. I also always feel safe here and never feel scared, because Hatfield ensures safety to all who reside here.

Hatfield is a small farming community comprised of approximately 3000 residents. It takes pride in its beautiful landscape, community activities like the annual Memorial Day Parade and town-wide outdoor candle lighting before Christmas. One can expect to go to school with the same classmates from kindergarten through senior year in high school, with a class size of no more than 30 students. It is a safe place to raise children, but it can also feel too cloistered. It is better to explore the world outside of the its radius to get an idea about multiculturalism and other ethnic backgrounds. Hatfield gives someone strong roots so that one can become independent and still know where one came from.
