A broadfork, also known as a grelinette, is an essential tool for small-scale farming and gardening using a no-till approach to soil preparation. The broadfork lifts and aerates soil without shredding it as a motorized tiller does. Broadforks are also excellent for heavy duty weeding, and they can be an assist for harvesting root crops.

 

The CobraHead Broadfork is produced by Structures Co., Inc., of Cambridge, Wisconsin. The design is a joint effort between Noel Valdes of CobraHead and Craig Carpenter of Structures Co. The fork uses a traditional European broadfork design but with a unique tine mounting system where the tines are mounted through the cross bar instead of being welded to the outside of the crossbar. The 5/8" (15.9mm) tines are made of 1045 carbon steel, a strong steel with excellent resistance to bending.

    Broadfork

    Posted by Sharon Beasley on 20th Feb 2019

    I received my broadfork last fall (2018), but only lately (in February 2019 ) have been able to use it in preparation for spring. I am 71, but in good health; however, I was worried the weight might wear me out in 10 minutes as I lifted and inserted it around the garden area. I used it for about an hour and it was much easier to use for the extended time than I anticipated. It was my first vigorous workout in the garden since last fall. I was sore the next morning, but it didn't last long. It was a good kind of sore you get after using lazy muscles. The soil was pretty moist and I have no rocks so it went very well. I think it was less tiring than using a shovel as I usually do when the vegetable garden has been invaded by weeds. As I like gardening activities for exercise, I think the broadfork is excellent as it uses muscles or arms, shoulders, back and legs although I need to alternate legs to keep them equally exercised. There are less expensive broadforks online, but in reading reviews of some of them, they aren't all made well. I don't think I will be having a problem with this one failing as long as I don't leave it outside to ruin the wooden handles. I loved using it.
