Product Description

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

“ I grow a lot of onions and carrots, which need constant weeding when they are young. My CobraHead is always the tool of choice because its sharp edges shave down weeds so efficiently. My garden is big and busy, but I have never lost a CobraHead because the curved neck can be hung on anything – a post, fence or even a tomato cage. I have a long-handled CobraHead, too, which I use in the garden for weeding and making shallow furrows. Confession: It makes a darn fine scraper in the chicken house, too. “

Barbara Pleasant, award-winning book author and contributing editor to Mother Earth News

“ I’ve found CobraHead to be one of the most durable tools out in the landscape. Used for a wide range of purposes, our volunteers also find CobraHead to be the preferred tool of choice. The longevity of this well-constructed tool will be measured in decades and beyond which is not typical anymore! “

Mark Dwyer, Director of Horticulture at Rotary Botanical Gardens (Janesville, WI).

“ I love my CobraHead because it is easy as 1-2-3 to get in between flagstones in order to easily pop out weeds!. “
