Broadfork Farm is named for an innovative and well-crafted tool for small scale agriculture: the broadfork.
The beauty of the broadfork is that is allows you to loosen and work the soil without disturbing the integrity of the soil structure. Soil is composed of layers that actually accomplish important purposes – to just till it all up destroys that work. Thus, the broadfork.
Johnny’s sells a well made broadfork, which is the one we use.
Recently oiled, the handles of our tools shine. The broadfork is far right.
