The Flint-Vinger factory, a Swiss cheese factory, was located northwest of Argyle. In the early years before milk cooling, cheese was made twice a day (four wheels daily) during spring and summer. The winter months were spent cutting wood for the wood-fired steam boiler, and later the farmers hauled coal by horse and wagon from the railroad.
