Dig into the details on the broadfork - check out this article in Mother Earth News!

In my experience:

  • The one I prefer was designed and handcrafted to my liking and is sold by Dubois Agrinovation. It has 5, 12-inch tines shaped in 90° parabolic curves that greatly smothers the rowing motion. www.dubois.com
  • Johnny’s Selected Seeds also offers several broadfork models that can accommodate different soil types. I’ve tried them all and would recommend any of them.www.johnnyseeds.com
  • Finally, for new ground that is not yet loose enough or really rocky, I would use the people's broadfork form Meadow Creature. It's an all metal broadfork made for heavy duty broadforking. www.meadowcreature.com
