Description:The Vashon Broadfork is a sturdy, welded, steel tool for working the ground.
Ideal for deep-aerating your beds, the broadfork is built strong enough to break new soil and turn over soil in existing beds.

What is a Broadfork?
The broadfork allows you to till and aerate your growing beds by hand, using a natural motion that's easy on your body. It provides an alternative to the noise, pollution, fossil fuel use, and ground compaction caused by power tilling.

The broadfork looks similar to a pitchfork, but it's stronger and heavier, with longer tines. To use, you stand on the cross bar, wriggling the handles and using your body weight to work the tines into the ground. Stepping off the broadfork, you can pull on the handles just a bit to loosen and aerate the soil around the tines, or leverage the handles further back for a more complete breaking of the soil.

Using the broadfork gives you a balanced workout of the upper body, without lifting soil or straining your lower back.
