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 30” 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, or if you would like both wood and steel select "Deluxe Combo Set" and you can use each 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 large footprint of the broadfork.  The steel handles will provide infallible strength in all soil types.  

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