Balgove Larder – Farm Shop. St Andrews
By breathing new life into an old steading, Strathtyrum Estate will establish a new destination on Scotland’s fine food map with the opening of the Balgove Larder farm shop, butchery, and café.
Algo was appointed in May 2010 to work with the Cheape family and Will Docker, farm shop manager, to transform the derelict farm steading into the building that now stands full of character, restored using local stone and incorporating energy-saving measures, including a wood-fuelled boiler and underfloor heating.
A quality build completed within a tight timescale has resulted in a project that has exceeded expectations. Balgove Larder sits opposite the famous Old Course of St Andrews.
