An apple orchard in the south metro is looking for a new owner.

What's new: Lakeville's Applewood Orchard hit the market last week for $2.1 million.

  • The 61.64-acre property includes more than 6,000 trees, retail storefront, storage buildings and a three-bedroom home built in 1997.

What they're saying: The owners announced the decision on their website to close and sell after 30 years.

  • "Although change is uncertain, we hope the new owners will continue this business as an orchard," their statement reads.

Catch up fast: Mark and Kathy Parranto started the orchard on a former corn field in the mid-1990s, planting 1,500 trees with the help of family and friends, per its website.

  • The pick-your-own operation grew to include 16 varieties, a playground and a hedge maze and pumpkins in the fall.
