STA certification in compost what does this mean?

I will be getting some compost from [url=https://www.stlcompost.com/products-compost.htm]St. Louis Composting[/url] this year. They are dang cheap half that of anyone else around. I actually have a place about 10 times closer than these guy's but they charge twice as much and it's from the same place, St. Louis Composting. :shock: So what does this certification mean? HG brought to my attention the last place I was going to I shouldn't be going to, so I have been hunting down alternatives. I hope this is a winner. It is about 45 min from my house but I will be getting around 4 yards.

Thanks

its all about good properly made compsot and ther are some bad ones people are trying to sell. stamps of certifications like these make it easy for us (customers) to tell whicth compost is done properly and witch compost is just a heap of organic matter possibly containing bad biology.

Cool man thanks TDB. I Googled STA and came up with every acronym possible but that one. :lol: It looks like this is a winner. Maybe I'll see how much their tractor trailer load cost. :shock: :P
