A fantastic range of food needs fantastic packaging!
The Fantastic Farm Shop Balgove Larder

Balgove Larder

Balgove Larder is a farm shop, just outside St Andrews, in the beautiful Kingdom of Fife. Balgove was conceived as a source for fresh, Scottish fare and has grown into a destination for top notch locally grown, stalked, caught, handmade, and prepared food. We believe that Scotland has some of the best beef, game, seafood, and produce in the world. Balgove want to keep this incredible food close to home instead of shipping it abroad. At most, everything they grow and raise on the farm travels a few miles and ends up right here in the shop, ready for you to take home. We have been working closely with Balgove Larder since 2015
