How it all began...

The Treadlite broadfork began one sunny afternoon in our backyard garden when Travis suggested the tool to ease the work of prepping our soil for planting.  Being a fabricator and welder by trade and gardener by passion Travis decided to build us a broadfork of our own.  After seeing how efficiently our broadfork turned the soil soon our neighbors and family were requesting broadforks too.  From here Treadlite Broadforks was born and our gardening family has continued to grow across the United States, Canada and Central America.  


Our broadforks are entirely American Made - from domestically sourced materials to full fabrication right here in Northeast Wisconsin.  We build each one of our tools, taking great care in craftsmanship.  We also love using our broadforks in our own garden!  So from our garden to yours we know you will love a Treadlite Broadfork!
