Costa Farm and Greenhouse grows high-quality bedding plants, perennials, hanging baskets, herbs, vegetable plants, and patio planters. Ron and Karin Costa maintain their third generation family farm on Highway 96 in Grant, MN. Generations of growing experience help Costa cultivate the highest quality products.

We’re known for our unique annuals and eye-catching hanging baskets. We place much attention to detail: growing healthy plants and only selling you the best. Big box stores can’t even compare to our level of obsession to detail.

Our superior product is made possible by Ron’s ability to grow produce with outstanding freshness and taste. Visit the farm and grab some super-sweet corn. You’ll discover the freshness of our products to be leagues ahead of the competition.

We firmly believe in local agriculture because it supports local farmers who care about the impact of their farming and because it helps support local economies. We run our entire business under the mindset “From Our Field to Your Fork” because that’s the way food is supposed to work.

In case you’re wondering, we’re USDA Food Safety Certified for the last 6 years.

Stop in during the growing season and checkout our onsite retail location. Pick up a Costa’s Corn Card and purchase your way to a free half dozen of our sweetest corn! We are open daily for all your fresh produce and canning needs Mid July thru Early September.

Additionally, contact us for more information about our wholesale business.

Ron is third generation owner of Costa Farm. The business started in 1913 with Ron’s grandfather Peter in Little Canada.  The business then moved to the White Bear Lake area in 1990. The experiences handed down from Ron’s father and grandfather are invaluable. Ron’s love of farming and attention to detail result in superb quality produce and bedding plants. Ron manages all farm decisions from seed selection to harvest. Ron, Karin and their girls, Gina (pictured above) and Grace sell their produce at many local farmer’s markets and the Costa roadside stand.
