About Us

Behind the scenes

We Are The Alexanders

Alexander’s Family Butchers is made up of myself, Jim Alexander, my wife Donna, and our three kids Casey, Peyton and Quinn. We started out as an online presence, predominantly on Facebook, working from a small unit in Kilmarnock, back in 2015. We didn’t have any cabinets or displays, so we couldn’t open to the public. We took orders online and delivered them to your door. We quickly realised that we would “need a bigger boat” and in 2016 we opened our shop in Darvel to the public. 

21 Years Experience

Things quickly took off as we built a name for ourselves locally. With over 21 years’ experience in the trade we wanted to bring a modern twist to a traditional trade, developing oven ready dishes and new innovative products that are easy and convenient but don’t compromise on quality, while still providing the everyday staples. We pride ourselves on delivering only the best quality products at competitive prices.

Family Time

Our kids are a great inspiration for some of the dishes we create. We know how challenging it can be trying to keep them happy and interested in good food. As a big family we also know how difficult it can be to make one meal that everyone will eat. For us, it’s all about family and we love nothing more than having our family round the table for Sunday dinner.

Come visit us...

Earlier this year and now settled in our shop in Darvel, we decided we wanted to go back to our roots. When we opened our shop, the order online/delivery side of our business fell by the wayside as we tried to navigate our way around operating a shop which was open to the public 5 days a week. Now we are ready to bring both together and offer the convenience that so many of you are looking for.

We are beyond excited about bringing this website to you, so that you can enjoy our quality products delivered direct to your door!
