"I highly recommend the broadforks from Valley Oak Tool. My years of experience as a farm and garden writer/broadcaster plus a lifetime of vegetable gardening lead me to conclude that a broadfork is one of the most useful tools available to improve soil structure and the overall health of the soil. The Valley Oak Tool broadfork is exceptionally well-built and easy to use. Buy it for yourself - but expect your grandchildren to be using it 40 years from now." —Jeff Ishee, Gen. Mgr. Rockingham County Fair Association.
"I have now had my wheel hoe for over a year and I love it! It is the most used gardening tool I own. I have about a 5,000 sf garden area this year. It would take all of my spare time to maintain if I did not own your wheel hoe with the 18” blade. I use the 18” blade almost exclusively. I only change out to the 8” when I have close rows. I am a pretty strong guy and I was skeptical at first about the strength of the 18” blade, but I have used it without reservation and had no problems at all. I have used it to cut weeds 3’ tall and had no problems. I have also cut sod with the 8” blade and the results were impressive! It’s nice to own a quality American made piece of equipment that I don’t have to baby in fear of it breaking like wheel hoes I have owned in the past. Thanks again." —Brett P.
“I just want to say, 'Why did it take me so long to order this wonderful tool?' We grow an acre and a half of diversified vegetables for restaurants with a lot of different plantings. Our plots have never looked so good. When those weed seeds start to flush off you go with the hoe and gone go the weeds. This will save knees, shoulders and time. Thank you for this item.” —Sharon Nagle, Fire Fly Farm
“I bought the combo package a few weeks ago. It works as well or better than I expected. I love it and should have purchased this years ago. No more weed barrier or chemicals to keep out the competing weeds.” —Brian Hewitt, Kenvil, NJ
