Product Description

The 5-Tine Valley Oak Broadfork breaks up and aerates heavily compacted soil 12 inches deep.

Our Broadfork is farm tough, but designed for comfortable all-day use. It is built with superior craftsmanship out of the best materials available.  We've reinforced all the areas where other forks bend or break. It will make quick work of hardpan and other compacted ground without breaking down the composition of the soil like a rototiller

This garden tool is built to last. Like all Valley Oak Broadforks, the 5-Tine is backed by our 5-Year Guarantee.

The Broadfork saves worms!

This broadfork ships fully assembled to our customers in the Contiguous U.S. It is ready to go to work, right out of the box.


I love it. It's one of the best garden tools I've ever used.  It's really balanced for my body. Thanks for making a good tool. -Todd Dalotto
 
The engineering is superb as is the quality for the materials and workmanship... I wouldn't trade it for anything I've used in the past to work up a seed bed. -Ted Mattson, Palmer AK
 
It’s just dandy – I just used it to turn the beds for my potatoes and it worked great. -Jimi Logsdon, Chico CA
 
Serious gardeners will be pleased with the superb craftsmanship that is so obvious in this tool. I was very impressed with the metal portion: strong thick gussets, sharp robust tines, and a wide hefty stepping platform.  My hard-pan creating, petroleum driven, worm pulverizing mechanized monster has been effectively replaced by this simple tool that maximizes human effort and works with nature… The ease with which one can significantly improve soil composition to a depth of 12" is remarkable.  -Lucas Smith, Boone NC

  1. very satisified 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th May 2015

    New to gardening, used small rototiller for first bed and found it
    troublesome and noisy. Used your 5 tine broadfork for the next
    3 beds, great improvement. Also got to enjoy chirping of birds,
    buzzing of insects and wind blowing thru trees. Delightful!
    Will recommend this tool to other gardeners.

  2. Heavy duty 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th May 2015

    This is a great tool. However, it is not for the average, older woman to use for extended periods of time due to its weight. Had I known, I would have purchased the 4 tine model.

  3. Old fashioned quality and durability. 5 Star Review

    This is a tool the Tool Time guy would be excited about. It's tough and gets the job done with minimal effort.

  4. Broadfork Review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2015

    I was not sure how this tool was going to perform in my clay soil. It was awesome. I would definitely recommend this tool to anyone. It is well worth the money. It is well made and will last many years.

  5. Works great! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2014

    This tool is very easy to use and does exactly what it is supposed to. It breaks up the soil deeply. The only recommendation I can make is to add treads to the top of the tines where you step to add some traction.

  6. Increase Your Garden Production 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2014

    We have been using this tool for the last two seasons at our community garden and have found that the vegetable garden production increased by about 43%. Once we use it to prepare the planting bed in the spring we do not need it until the following year. Our beds are 4 foot wide and the broad fork will cover the bed in two side by side passes. Once we till the bed, we do not step foot on them to avoid soil compaction.

  7. Excellent ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2013

    I decided to go with the broadfork over a rototiller for a few reasons.

    First off, we have a mix of clay and shale, and I know from previously experience that the rototiller has a hard time of it, especially if there are weeds present. The clay clogs up the tines something fierce.

    Secondly, I wanted something with few moving parts, and the broadfork fits that bill. After some hard work with it, I can see the only thing I may ever need to do is replace the handles, but they held up through the abuse I put them through this year.

    Thirdly, this causes less harm to the environment than a motorized option.
