The Market Gardener Broadfork (7 tines)

The Market Gardener Broadfork was inspired by J.M. Fortier, a renowned gardener and broadforker. This broadfork is sized to be a perfect fit for single pass tilling in your beds. Yes, this tool is our heaviest but if you have a 36” bed it also means fewer lifts of your broadfork as you move through the soil to till your full bed. 

Although the width of the step tube is 30” the handles are still mounted at our standard 20” width for comfortable broadforking.  The Market Gardener Broadfork tines cultivate a true 12" deep into the soil.                                                           

Strengths of this model include:                                                                                                                         

  • Superior size and strength
  • Smooth tilling with 7 tines
  • Widest footprint = less passes and lifts of the broadfork
  • Prepping and turning over beds
  • Soil aeration
  • Harvesting crops




Choose your desired handle style from our ash wood, alloy steel or the deluxe combo set to use both styles interchangeably in your Treadlite Broadfork. 


HANDLE RECOMMENDATION: The steel handles are preferred with The Market Gardener Broadfork due to greater leverage in the soil with the wide footprint of the broadfork.  The steel handles will provide superior strength in all soil types and for all uses from breaking new ground to cultivation and harvest.

*If you prefer the ash wood handles for a lighter tool, they will preform well with care.
