BroadFork Feedback

Pete Dollimore's glowing review from December 2016 has a page of its own, but we thought it would be good to start a page of shorter comments from other customers who have been using their BroadForks, so here it is!

We continue to be amazed by the nearly world-wide reach of these simple and effective tools.  Apart from the UK, we have sent BroadForks to:– Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, France, Ireland, Spain, Chile, Finland, Germany, Estonia, Czech Republic, South Africa, Italy, Austria and Portugal – so far!!

When, back in 2009, Phil (above) went to Malcolm, his local blacksmith, to ask him to make a BroadFork for him, taking the specification out of Eliot Coleman's The New Organic Grower, he can have had no idea how successful they would be.  Many, many thanks to Phil, and all credit to Malcolm for producing such a sturdy piece of kit!

Some of these enquiries have come straight from simple web searches but an increasing number seem to come from recommendations.  Certainly, we have found the real benefits of using our own BroadFork and would still be recommending them even if we weren't selling them!

So, here are the first comments.  If you have some BroadFork experience you would like us to share on this page, please just email us.

David Horton (February 2019) says: "I know I've said this before, your broad fork is a brilliant tool.  I'm making a new veg patch, compacted ground. Broad fork  followed by devon spade is so much easier than just the spade.  Thank you, it is not a tool that I use a lot, but it is a very effective bit of kit. "Right tool for the right job" where it makes a hard job a lot easier."
