The Square Foot Gardener Broadfork        (6 tines)

The Square Foot Gardener Broadfork was inspired by Eliot Coleman’s 24” bed size. This broadfork is sized to be a perfect fit for single pass tilling in your beds. 

Although the width of the step tube is 24” the handles are still mounted at our standard 20” width for comfortable broadforking.  The Square Foot Gardener Broadfork tines cultivate a true 12" deep into the soil. 


Strengths of this model include:


  • Ideal balance of lightweight and larger size
  • Smooth tilling with 6 tines
  • Wider footprint = less passes and lifts of the broadfork
  • Prepping and turning over beds
  • Soil aeration
  • Harvesting crops
  • Great for use in cultivated soil or already established beds




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


HANDLE RECOMMENDATION: The steel handles are preferred with The Square Foot 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.




***UPDATE: Powder Coat Blue is the only option currently available for a finish coat.  We are sold out of the organic natural coated Treadlite Broadforks for this season.***

Choose your desired finish coat between our powder coated blue or our hand dipped natural coating made from beeswax and tung oil.  Our natural coating is NEW for the 2020 growing season and we are super excited about this all-natural alternative to powder coat.  


Please see our FAQ page for more info on our coating options and our shipping policies.
