Meadow Creature's Broadforks are easy to use and built for a lifetime.
Ideal for deep-aerating your beds, our broadforks easily turn soil in existing beds.
If you're looking for a tool to break the hardest sod and pasture, and turn hardpan into a garden bed, you've found it - buy ours with confidence, you won't break it.
Meadow Creature broadforks are fabricated in the USA from high-strength alloy steel and ship as a single solid welded piece with no mechanical connections to work loose. They are the best engineered and the strongest. This tool has a good balance, so using it requires less effort.
The broadfork allows you to till and aerate your growing beds by hand, using a natural motion that's easier on your body - no twisting. It tills deeper and provides an alternative to the noise, pollution, fossil fuel use, and ground compaction caused by power tilling.
The broadfork looks similar to a pitchfork, but it's stronger and heavier, with longer tines. Our tines have a gentle curve to ease ground penetration. To use, you stand on the cross bar, wriggling the handles and using your body weight to work the tines into the ground. Stepping off the broadfork, you can pull on the handles just a bit to loosen and aerate the soil around the tines, or leverage the handles further back for a more complete breaking of the soil. After each "pull", work backwards and side to side, to turn your bed, without stepping on the loosened soil.
