The village has a population of just over two hundred and thirty and only a few farmers left. The beginning of the Iron Age in this region, called "La Tène", dates from the 7th century BC.
The village of Ferreyres, whose origins date back to the year 815, and whose name comes from the word "ferraria" because of the many iron furnaces that were in operation three centuries before the Roman invasion, has several old houses, some of which date from the 16th and 17th centuries.
It should also be noted that the collector and painter Jean Planque was born in this village in 1910.
The surrounding forests are full of game and are also home to young lynxes, which sometimes come down from the Jura foothills to hunt in the region. After discovering the little paradise that is La Tine de Conflens, visitors are happy to stop for lunch every weekday at Mimi La Tine de Conflens, Bistrot - Epicerie du terroir, where they can buy local produce from Monday to Saturday (https://www.chezmimi.ch/).
