About us

We are an independent online shop in East Sussex. Release the homebrewer in you! And follow our blog to get advice on brewing and making your own everything.

You may already know us from Little Sunflowers, our award-winning independent children's clothing and gift shop, which we ran for 14 years. Almost Off Grid Home Brew now occupies those premises. We were proud to have been rated the UK's top childrenswear and gift shop over many years, according to Trustpilot. Little Sunflowers won the prestigious Online Retail Awards - twice. We have even run workshops for other local shops. So we like to think we know a bit about running a successful online business.

Whilst we look like a shop from the outside, the 'shop' is in fact a mini warehouse so unfortunately it's not possible to come in and browse. But our aim is to make your online shop as close to the face-to-face shopping experience as possible. We hope you will find everything you need on this website. If you need something extra or you're unsure of anything, please give us a call. If we can get it for you, we will! If you live locally, we can have your order ready to collect within 2 hours Monday to Friday, and often weekends too by prior arrangement. We can take payment when you arrive, if that suits you better. We might even be able to deliver to you on the same day, depending on where you live.

Located in Horam, East Sussex, we are 25 minutes drive from the sea in an area of outstanding natural beauty. We are proud to occupy the shop in Horam High Street. Businesses have resided in this building since the turn of the century when it was built, starting with Grocers William Delves & Sons Ltd in the days when the village was known as Horeham Road (our village name was changed to Horam in November 1925). In these images you can see the house and shop in days gone by.
