At the Académie Potagère, we believe that a successful growing season depends not only on making the right decisions at the right time, but also using the proper equipment. With a combined 20 years’ experience in gardening and organic market gardening, we’ve tested a wide range of tools, some more suitable than others, and are now skilled in separating the wheat from the chaff when it comes to equipment. For over 10 years, Terrateck has been working with market gardeners to design and manufacture high-quality tools to meet their specific needs, and, in particular, for small-scale organic vegetable production. Together, we’ve compiled a list of tools to help take your market garden to the next level: having learnt from the expertise of professional market gardeners, now it’s time to start using their tools!
