Our grelinettes are forged in special steel for maximum resistance without breaking. Their curved teeth are 14 mm in diameter, the thickest on the market. The teeth are 30 cm deep. This grelinette is thus a very solid and resistant tool for many years. The spacing between the teeth is 11 centimeters.

Aerate the soil without mixing the layers of soil and breaking up the clods

Without digging, or plowing, giving air to the soil and therefore to the organisms that live there, thus providing them with the air they need to develop in good conditions. Thus, a compact and heavy soil will gradually become fertile thanks to the combined contributions of air and organic matter carbonized on the surface and of plants bringing permanently rhizodeposition. This is the recipe for soil degradation.

Thanks to this robust and efficient professional quality grelinette, working the soil becomes simple and quick. An organic and ecological digging fork which, when put to good use, enriches the soil over time.

The broadfork grelinette, a practical, effective tool that preserves the back of the gardener or market gardener

Derived from the grelinette , these tools, which are called “fork-to-tail”, “bio-spade”, “biofork”, “actibêche”, “aerobêche” make it possible to work the soil quickly while stirring and aerating the soil without turning it over. and especially with little effort.

Having back pain or spending a lot of time digging up the vegetable patch is a thing of the past. It is possible to tell yourself that the tiller may not be compulsory.

Born from a chance encounter

Since 2015, I have distributed grelinettes from four manufacturers …
But, on March 30, 2018, a call for volunteers was launched by Aurélie and Nicolas from the Droelloc farm located in the neighboring town. Help was needed to plant 150 trees in one afternoon to wood their slopes. Having managed to process orders in the morning, I decided to go and lend a hand to the new owners that I didn’t know yet. As I imagined that it would be necessary to make holes, I had sent my grelinettes …

And among the volunteers, one of them was very interested in my tools because this metal enthusiast had just moved into the town, and set up his workshop there… Once the trees were planted and shared a moment of conviviality to celebrate this beautiful plantation, I visited his workshop. From our first meeting, it was clear that we were going to work together.

8 months gestation

Since I equip a lot of professional market gardeners, I designed a really reinforced grelinette with long sockets, a frame very costly to avoid any ovalization of the holes in which the teeth are inserted to weld them. Compared to the feedback I had from users, I wanted to lengthen the teeth up to 30 cm.

This is how this new grelinette was born: “La PLaisible”. It is the contraction of “Pleasure” and “Possible” in the responsible sense. Because yes, with a tool that respects man and the earth, the garden must remain a possible pleasure for all.

A tool delivered with quality handles

The ash handles of this solid garden tool are also of high quality. The cones of the sockets in which they are fitted are long enough for good transmission of the lever effect without risk of breakage. These are sleeves of good density and beautiful finish. I deliver your grelinette with sleeves that I tested on your tool and then sanded for a touch.

A grelinette with hoop (optional)

grelinette with bow

Grelinette with hoop available from 3 to 7 teeth.

For very compact and clay soils, the gardener will want to shake the tool from right to left to break the clods. This movement requires physical strength. To facilitate this oscillation, an arch is available as an optionon this aero fork.

A personal remark. The passage of this tool in the soil of your vegetable garden aims to aerate the earth and not to return it . The use of an arch is therefore not an obligation to obtain an effective result.

I recommend the version with arch rather for the land containing roots of quackgrass or bindweed . The hoop thus allows to raise the earth higher to leave the longest possible roots. If you want to move a plant, this tool with hoop will allow you to have a bigger lever.

Finishing this ecological digging fork

A  black painting of presentation  is applied on your grelinette. It will go with time to the teeth and the bar where you put your feet.

The sleeves are raw (unvarnished) . You can apply a mixture of turpentine and linseed oil for better preservation over the years.

You can join the sleeves with the aero spade with a screw or tip  to your at your convenience. It is better to make a prehole not to split the wood of the handle.

Above all, this is not a fork made in China to have a cheap grelinette that may bend quickly, but a beautiful tool forged and tempered in France with quality steel .

Effective and beneficial tillage

The purpose of plowing is soil weeding, mineralization, and allowing faster warming in the spring . But the passage of a plow in a field where the digging by turning the earth in a kitchen garden raises the seeds. Thus, there will be less  lighting of new seeds of “weeds” that would have the effect of lifting their dormancy and thus put them in a germination situation.

By passing the grelinette, the micro-organisms of surface and those of depth remain each in their place. The roots of “weeds” are separated from the soil and a simple passage of croc or rake can pick them up  without stooping.

Aeration of the soil will allow over the years to “manufacture” and improve your land through the supply of oxygen in the soil which promotes soil life and therefore its fertility.

Personal experience and opinion

I own a grelinette since 2008. When we built our ecological home in 2007 the land had been roughed up by the yard. The earth is very clayey and compact. This is the only tool I could drive into the ground, dancing on it to get it back. This allowed me to make the soil fertile and loose, but also to dig up big stones, to make the planting holes of my trees, and to move some of them …

My boys and my daughter use a small galvanized child’s grelinette .

Do not hesitate to show this tool (still too little known) to your family and your neighbors. Why not even put it on renting tool rental sites or put an ad on LeBonCoin. This allows for meetings and exchanges of seeds, and maybe even to bring back some money.😉
