Argentos hang up milking aprons

FARMERS turned out in droves for Leo and Karen Argento’s clearing sale on Friday morning.
Mr Argento has lived on the dairy farm at 670 Yarragon Road, Wooreen since his parents moved there in 1964 when he was just four.
He married Karen Hanks in 1989 and bought the farm, but now it is time for the next phase of their lives.
The farm sold more quickly than anticipated and now the Argentos are in the throes of building on two and a half acres in Leongatha.
They still have a holding at Middle Tarwin but are looking forward to whatever the future brings.
Over the years the farm has seen many changes. Building a new home to replace the original house which had been there since the 1930s and the installation of a rotary dairy are two of the main improvements made to the farm’s infrastructure in that time.
As well as having more time to spend with their five children, Mr Argento said the garden on the new property would take up quite a lot of time.
The Argentos’ children are off enjoying their own lives. Larissa works for the Australian Bureau of Statistics in Canberra, Rebecca is studying chemical engineering, Bridget is studying pharmaceuticals and Nicholas is studying commerce and engineering, all at Monash University. Anthony is in Year 12 at Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College, Leongatha.
