At Lillklobb, the only motor tools at my disposal are a chainsaw, an electric drill, a small wood chipper, and my Volvo. There's no tractor, two wheel or four hooved, to "work" the soil. All of the gardening is done by hand. Although the team used a broadfork for one season, its continued use after getting the job done wasn't required either. Surprisingly it was more effective as a tool to help remove perennial weeds than decompacting the soil. Like many "things" it was very useful for the stage the farm was in.
Disturbing the soil through tillage, cultivation, and chemical applications should be kept to the bare minimum and if it is used at all then the soil needs to be healed immediately with biology.
Did you know that earthworm burrows can last at least 30 years in our climate? Imagine how many tunnels various soil organisms, including plants and fungi, can create to improve soil structure in that amount of time. And imagine the number of homes you destroy and work that is wasted everytime you "work" the soil!
