Our Ethos

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

Chloe has since gone on to save lives with the Scottish Ambulance Service, but can still be found occasionally helping out.

We are delighted to bring loose wholefoods, refill cleaning products, eco toiletries and lifestyle products to Troon and Prestwick.

Single use plastic is doing irreparable damage to our planet. We are all about offering alternatives.

By taking small, sustainable steps we can make a difference.

We are not a "Health Food" shop, a "Farm Shop", a "Hippy" shop.

We are:

A place where you can shop ethically and sustainably.

Somewhere to shop knowing you are reducing the impact on our environment.

Somewhere we can shop to reduce our waste.

Somewhere we can help save plastic, planet and pocket.

Pick somewhere to start, and start today.

"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, alpaca and miniature donkeys 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 the fresh eggs we sell in our shops every day from our mix of hybrid, Legbar and Maran chickens.

When not in the shops, Andrew runs his own gardening business providing both domestic and commercial customers with garden maintenance. Ainsley works between Breeze and Alloway Place and fits in some Aesthetics at Sharon Muir in Church Street too!
