Meet the owner

Justin Harmer

Susan and Justin Harmer will give you a warm welcome to Mill Laine Barns. We are the fifth generation to farm at Mill Laine and Offham Farms, carrying on the family traditions with prize winning Sussex Cattle and Southdown Sheep. The farm has diversified with the holiday cottages and a thriving Farm Shop that sells outstanding produce from the farm. The sixth generation is at university and college, training to farm and take over the business. There is even a member of the seventh generation just arrived. The holiday cottage complex was the worthy winner of the Rural Parliamentary Awards in 2006 for the 'best woman in farming' section. The cottages also won the Lewes District Awards for the best small business in 2014.
