Margot and Richard


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 sold Fantail Grove in 2016 and moved all of 300 metres up the road.

Our Sevilo site remains as a place to learn about us and our interests, Margot through her archived 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. It took several years to get ownership of the name. Now we have it but don't grow olives! Such is life...
