The village of Moiry is situated at the foot of the Jura on the heights of La Sarraz; it has about three hundred inhabitants.
The forests cover most of the municipal territory and are ideal for walking, hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and mushroom picking. The fauna is also well represented in the region. There are hares, wild boars and roe deer.
There are several marked trails in the Suisse-Rando area. A lean meadow is home to the pulsatile anemone (Pulsatilla vulgaris) which flowers in March and is a protected plant typical of poor limestone soils.
Between Moiry and Cuarnens, there is a mill operating entirely on the hydraulic power of a small river, the Morvaz.
