The Golden Hoe is an Item that allows the player to better till all soil.
The Golden Hoe is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. Upon being picked up, all soil tilled by any sources will automatically be tilled into the better state. This means that the given tile of soil will be able to grow two Crops instead of one before needing to be re-tilled. This essentially halves the amount of times players will need to spend re-tilling soil after a Crop harvest.
Other sources of tilling soil can provide the same effect that the Golden Hoe provides, however the majority still without the player's full control. These include certain Farm Animals, such as Pigs and Hogs, the Megaton Tractor, and the Earthquake Scroll. So because of this players are technically able to utilize better tilled soil without the use of this Item. However, because of how the Golden Hoe is the primary one with the player's full control it possesses a distinct advantage in that regard.
