The Kumeu Agricultural and Horticultural Society hosts one of the largest annual shows in the Southern Hemisphere (The Kumeu Show) on 34 hectares (84 acres) of land at its own show-grounds situated on Access road.

The Kumeu Agricultural & Horticultural Society (KAHS) was formed in 1921 with a purpose to improve the Kumeu districts horticultural growing and animal breeding activities by having an annual show held on land loaned for the event on the main highway in Kumeu. About 1953 the Society purchased a 17 hectare farm near Kumeu railway station, followed some years later by a neighbouring 17 hectares to form a working farm.
