Vendors of a Red Hill South apple and cherry orchard with a market garden, shop and roadside stall are looking for new owners after six decades.
The 107 Stanleys Rd allotment on 1.3ha has been long held by the Delgrosso family, who came out from Italy in the 1930s.
They started buying up land in the area and cultivated apples, cherries and vegetables.
No. 107 Stanleys Rd was purchased in the fifties and Bruno and Julie Delgrosso, descendants of the pioneers, built a house there in 1978 and also planted new varieties of cherries.

The veranda is perfect to take in excellent garden views.
The home is comfortable with spacious interiors with serene views.
They also added a market garden with rotating crops such as rhubarb, broad beans and garlic, which are sold at the shop.
The generous four-bedroom, two-bathroom house includes a study and separate dining, kitchen and family rooms, and is ideal for a growing family seeking a lifestyle change and a business opportunity.
The property is listed with TJ Sparks and has an indicative selling price of $2.91-$3.201 million.
The view stretches far towards the water.
The house is surrounded by rhododendron, camellia and rose plantings, including a century-old oak tree. There are also plum and lemon trees and native plantings.
The property comes with a shop at the front, which could be converted to a double garage, family area or gym.
It also captures wonderful views over the township and Western Port Bay.
Sales records indicate very few such farms and market garden lots come up for sale in the tightly held suburb.
