Sevilo is Margot and Richard's web site. We live near Greytown in the Wairarapa.
After growing, producing and selling Olive Oil, Hazelnuts and Table Grapes for 16 years under the name Fantail Grove (TM) we decided it was time to move on.
We've sold Fantail Grove to people we think will make us proud. Please visit the web site and give them your support: Fantail Grove
The Sevilo site remains as a place to learn about us and our other interests, Margot through her blog, Richard through his NZ music pages.
So why "Sevilo"? Back in the 1990's when growing something, maybe olives, was but an idea, a colleague suggested "Sevilo" as a joke. It sounds good, and might even be Italian, but is of course just "olives" spelt backwards.
But other people had the same idea! There were and are other Sevilo's out there, so when we finally had nuts and oil to sell, we chose something distinctly more Kiwi, and representative of the grove - "Fantail Grove" was born.
