Anneliese, our resident communications arts guru, shot and edited this video of me using Larry Cooper’s Gulland Forge Broadfork which the gardeners at CobraHead both use and sell.
The broadfork is an ancient tool that is enjoying a revival with small scale growers and larger scale home gardeners. The tool is excellent for loosening up previously cultivated soil to quickly prepare large areas for planting. I also use it to break up areas that have gone to weed for quick cleanup, and it is a good tool for harvesting root crops.
We are happy to be selling a broadfork designed and made by blacksmith Larry Cooper of Siler City, North Carolina. I’ve used several broadforks over the years and I’m quite sure this is the most logical, best designed, and best built fork available.
