Mooncoin Beetroot is grown and handpicked by the Murphy family in the fertile river Suir vally of South Kilkenny. The success of Mooncoin Beetroot steams from the fact that our beetroot is cooked and jarred in our home only hours after leaving the soil. This care, combined with our unique family recipe, produces beetroot we believe, to be of unrivalled quality!
