Frequently asked questions

What is a Broadfork?

A broadfork is a tool for working the soil in the garden. The advantage over conventional digging forks is that the Broadfork can be used to work much faster, deeper and with less effort

What material is the Broadfork made of?

Only high-strength tool steel is used for the tines. This has a 3-fold higher strength compared to normal steel (structural steel).

Is there a warranty on the Broadfork?

We provide two years warranty on our products from the date of purchase.

What is the difference between broadfork, grelinette, broad digging fork?

These are different terms of different origin, but they all stand for a device for soil cultivation with a large working width. We use the English term “broadfork”.

What distinguishes the TERRADIX Broadfork from models from other digging fork suppliers?

– Unique material selection (high-strength tool steel with 3 times strength)
– Optimized, lightweight design with extreme stability at the same time
– Optimized ergonomics
– Optimal customer service
– Fair price-performance ratio

Is the Broadfork also suitable for heavy soils?

Yes, the digging fork is suitable for all types of soil. The long lever of the handle tube, the sturdy tines and the large tread surface allow the use even in heavy conditions.

How can I increase the humus content in the garden?

The humus content is increased by regular addition of organic material (green cuttings, compost) and by the promotion of soil fauna (microorganisms, earthworms, isopods…). This requires gentle tillage with a digging fork. Complete ploughing or rotary tilling of the soil should be avoided.
We have compiled further information under humus build-up in the garden .

Where can I buy the Broadfork?

You can order your Broadfork directly from us in the TERRADIX Shop

Is it worth growing your own fruits and vegetables?

It all depends. If you value high-quality fruits and vegetables and grow a large part of them yourself, you can save up to several thousand euros per year and household. Organic vegetables have a higher price than conventionally grown ones, especially if they are purchased regionally rather than at discount stores. A home garden of average size, if well used and seasonal, can provide a family with plenty of organic quality fruits and vegetables throughout the year.
