Seville Oranges Have Arrived!

Seville oranges have arrived early in our farm shop and we are thrilled with these bitter marvels. Seville oranges are most commonly used to make marmalade and considered the finest type in Britain and beyond. Let our Seville oranges brighten up your kitchen this cold Hampshire day and try our ‘Grapefruit & Seville Orange’ marmalade recipe.
