Fred & Jane Holasek

Fred Holasek and Son Greenhouse was started over 35 years ago by Fred W. Holasek. After working for another greenhouse in high school, he started his own business on the corner of County Road 6 and Highway 12 in Long Lake, Mn. He purchased the Lester Prairie Minnesota property in 1978. Lester Prairie is located approximately 30 minutes West of the Twin Cities Metro area on State Highway 7. We currently have over 70,000 square feet of greenhouses.

Family members have always been involved in the greenhouse. His mother, father, and siblings all helped one way or another to get his business going. Jane Holasek, Fred’s wife, began as part-time in 1986, and moved to full time in 1995. Sons Alan and Jay help when they are not in school. Wholesale and retail sales have always been part of the business. Our trucks deliver to professional gardeners and small, high-end garden centers that are locally owned within an hour’s radius from Lester Prairie.

Our biggest and busiest season is spring, when our 30 employees work to provide our customers with the best quality and most unusual annuals anywhere! In summer, we grow a large crop of 8″ annuals and start the poinsettia crop for Christmas. We grow over 20 varieties of pumpkins and gourds in our fields out back during the summer for fall sales. Other crops also grown in summer for fall sales include ornamental cabbage and kale. When November comes, we’re ready with spruce tips, outdoor greens, and thousands of poinsettias for seasonal decorating. There’s always something growing at Fred Holasek and Son Greenhouse!
