Balgove Larder – near St Andrews Scotland

On a recent trip to St Andrews in Scotland we came accross the recently established Balgove Larder.

It results from the dream of businessman and food lover Will Docker, and is already proving to be a huge attraction for residents, visitors, and the town’s large student population. The concept of building a quality farm shop brand was born in the summer of 2009 to cater for the apparent niche in the St Andrews market and to help generate a greater interest in locally grown, and sourced, seasonal produce.

The buildings, which had served numerous roles including a dairy, grain store and cattle shed, were deteriorating to the extent that they needed to be developed or demolished,the impressive conversion incorporates as much environmentally responsible thinking as possible.
