Getting Here

The Good From Scratch Cookery School farm is located 40 minutes from downtown Auckland.

Depending on which direction you are coming from you will generally be going against rush hour traffic during the week for full-day classes.
Kumeu does get busy during the weekends with people heading out to the beach and forest, so allow extra time for travel.

Follow our instructions, to help you get here more easily.

Taxi services, Uber and private shuttles all service the Muriwai area. I would however recommend hiring a car, that way you can take in some other sites whilst out in the Nor-west area.
