Meet the Getting's
Getting’s Garden is definitely a “family affair”! It all started back in 1983 when Don Sr., Sheril, Don Jr. and Mary Jo Getting, started the strawberry business. It all began with 1 acre of strawberries to presently picking off of 18 acres.
Currently Don and Mary Jo are in partnership with their son and daughter-in-law, Andrew and Karissa. Don and Andy also grain farm together. Karissa is as a DNP working at a local hospital/clinic. They have two children, Matthias & Hannah.
Our daughter and son-in-law Brittany and Derek Keizer live in Sioux Center with their daughter Kenleigh. Brittany owns Simply Jade Boutique and Derek coaches at Dordt College both in Sioux center. They come out and help on Saturday’s and whenever else their schedule allows.
Sheril, Don’s mom, continues to make jam and pies and enjoys visiting with customer that stop by her house.
The past 32 years the whole family has worked together in the strawberry business, with Don being the “anchor”. Andy and Brittany grew up weeding the fields, picking berries. Driving the Express, working in the Market and helping our customers find that perfect row to pick in.
Five years ago we opened up our “Market”, so we could offer more products to our customers and provide delicious strawberry treats and shop our unique items. We also have 2 acres of raspberries, which are ready to be picked later in August.
We give all the glory and praise to our Heavenly Father for giving us this opportunity to work together as a family and to have the strawberry/raspberry business. We have met many wonderful people over the years and appreciate your business year after year!
