Best Hoe Enchantments in Minecraft (Ranked)

Best Hoe Enchantments in Minecraft (Ranked)

There are a number of different enchantments for your Hoe in Minecraft, but only a few of them are actually worth it. We know how cumbersome it can be to go through each enchant to find one perfect for your build. This is why in this article, we’ve ranked the best Hoe enchantments in Minecraft for you!

The best Hoe enchantments in Minecraft include Silk Touch, Fortune, Mending, and Efficiency. Enchantments can be excellent for raising your tool’s stats, adding new abilities, and creating new unique builds.


Hoes aren’t the most popular tool to use in Minecraft, but they’re still incredibly useful. You will want to make sure that your hoe is efficient and provide the best farming speed to get the most amount of materials. Let’s check out some of the best enchantments to make that possible.

5. Mending


The first enchantment on our list is Mending. This is an excellent enchantment if you’re hoping to use your material farming tools for a long time. The Mending enchantment allows you to repair your hoe when you gain XP orbs.

Although it can be difficult to track down this enchantment, due to the low odds of getting it at the enchanting table. But it is an incredibly powerful and useful enchantment that allows you to extend the lifeline of your weapons, tools, and armor.


The only drawback is that you have to waste precious XP points, which can be quite a big demand in the early and middle stages of the game. This is why despite its obvious advantage we consider Mending to be at the bottom of usefulness in Minecraft when it comes to enchanting your hoe.

4. Unbreaking


Our next enchantment is Unbreaking. For those of you that think Mending is a great enchantment, we think Unbreaking is almost the exact same, but with fewer restrictions. You see, Unbreaking increases item durability but does not cost any XP, unlike Mending.

Typically, you can raise the durability of your tool, weapon, or armor by up to three levels. And this can be incredibly useful for tools like the hoe because you can use the best ones for longer.

The Unbreaking enchantment will prevent your tools from breaking too easily, and you’ll be able to get more materials and uses out of tools made from precious materials.

This is one of the best enchantments you can get for your hoe.

3. Efficiency


The third enchantment on our list is Efficiency, and we’ve got to agree it’s a top-tier enchantment. The principal effect of Efficiency is that it increases your mining speed. In Minecraft, all your tools, especially the hoe, facilitate mining which can be tedious without access to these tools.


The efficiency enchantment allows you to farm, mine, and obtain items at a much faster rate. If you’re looking to farm effectively, especially if you’re considering removing certain plant-based, organic, blocks then you will need to enchant your hoe with Efficiency for speeding up the process.

2. Silk Touch

Silk Touch - Minecraft Enchantment

In the runner-up spot for our list of the best hoe enchantments in Minecraft is Silk Touch. For some, this might be top-tier, but its use cases are heavily limited. The main purpose of Silk Touch is to convert mined blocks as blocks rather than breaking them into associated items.

On a hoe, this can be an incredibly useful enchantment. This is because it can allow you to remove organic, or plant-based blocks, that might get in the way of other more useful blocks that you might want to set up.


Your hoe can function to break other blocks as well that might have otherwise required a specific tool. But with Silk Touch, you can get rid of whatever you want, and keep it for later to deal with as you think appropriate.

1. Fortune

Fortune - Minecraft Enchantments

Finally, our best enchantment for the hoe in Minecraft is Fortune. Fortune increases certain item drop chances from blocks.

This is incredibly useful if you’re trying to get more of a particular type of item. Especially heavily sought-after ones can be difficult to obtain without Fortune increasing their drop chances.

You can increase the number of drops you can get with Fortune, and this mere fact alone makes it one of the best enchantments for any tool, but especially for a hoe.


With Fortune, your hoe will become ideal for harvesting crops and obtaining food resources. Which is why it’s our top pick as an enchantment for your hoe.
