From a totally rural village until the post-war Crottet is now the archetypal village rurban. Until the late 1970s, he had to follow the herd every night, from the prairie, joined the stables of the village. The expedition lasted over half an hour between the junction of Ormet and the church, but this quickly evaporated transhumance daily at the rate of mutation of agriculture. Many farmers have retired and their successors in moving herds of cattle trucks. It remains only five farms in about 1750 inhabitants and 1212 acres of surface. The population has found other sources of income, either in one of the forty companies Crottet or in jobs in industry, services and administration to Macon.

The district Chavannes, flooded regularly by both the Saône by the Veyle is the junction of the TGV and SNCF Macon town. The prairie, field flooding of the Saone, covers nearly a third of the town and is protected by the Natura 2000. A peculiarity of the town of Crottet is its location.
