Our Ethos

Andrew Hunter and Chloe Ness are the team behind Lavemill Larder, with the help and support of wife and Mum Dr Ainsley Coats.

Andrew and Chloe are delighted to bring unpackaged goods, eco toiletries and lifestyle products to Troon. 

By using alternatives to plastic packaging, and with refill options available, we are encouraging us all to rethink our shopping habits.

As we have become more aware of the environmentally damaging impacts of single use plastic, we are looking for alternative ways to live.

By taking small, sustainable steps to help the environment we can all make a difference. We might not get it right all the time, but we can all try to make a positive impact for our future. 

We need to do something about this and we need to start now.

"Do a little to help a lot"


Our Background

Andrew and Ainsley live on a Smallholding outside Dundonald where Chloe and her brother Connor grew up surrounded by horses, chickens, dogs and cats. 

More recently sheep, goats and alpaca have joined the menagerie. We grow a lot of our own vegetables for ourselves and our animals, have a small orchard producing mainly apples for our horses and harvest fresh eggs every day from our mix of hybrid, Legbar and Frizzle chickens.

When not in the shop, Andrew runs his own gardening business providing both domestic and commercial customers with garden maintenance. Chloe can be found with her Dentist Mum in Breeze Dental Clinic where she has been a Dental Nurse for many years.
