How our Broadfork Tools Impact Soil Health

Fall is here, and there's no better time to start preparing your garden for the season ahead. But before you get down to planting, there's one crucial step you need to consider: soil aeration. That's why we're introducing you to our two groundbreaking broadforks!

Why Aerate Soil?

Healthy soil is the foundation of any thriving garden. Aeration is key to reversing soil compaction, increasing water infiltration, reducing runoff, and much more. With our Broadfork tools, you can achieve all of this with minimal inversion of natural soil layers.
