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 unpackaged dry goods, eco toiletries and lifestyle products to Troon and Prestwick.

As we have become more aware of the environmentally damaging impacts of single use plastic, we are looking for alternatives. 

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

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

We are:

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

Somewhere we can 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 fresh eggs every day from our mix of hybrid, Legbar and Maran chickens.

When not in the shop, 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!
