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, 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 wood handles are preffered with The Square Foot Gardener Broadfork to keep it as lightweight and maneuverable as possible.  We know you will love the natural feel of our ash wood handles!

*If you are hoping to break new ground or have hard-pan soil we recommend the steel handles for strength due to the larger footprint and greater amount of tines moving through the soil.
