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 15 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 Sanford Sheldon Hospital/Clinic. They have two children, Matthias & Hannah. Matthias is 4 and loves to “help out” whenever he can and Hannah is 2 and wants to do everything her brother does. I am sure we will see more of Hannah “helping out” as she gets older.
Our daughter and son-in-law Brittany and Derek Keizer live in Sioux Center and have 2 girls, Kenleigh and Ada. Brittany owns Simply Jade Boutique and Derek coaches and teaches 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 33 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.
Mary is in charge of the Market, which offers a variety of strawberry treats and unique items to check out. We have become famous in our area for the fresh strawberry shakes and fresh strawberry donuts.
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!
