    Ok, I have read several articles in magazines, I have read some of the threads here, but now I am going to have to break down and ask...

    What does CSA stand for?

    Thanks.

    Community Supported Agriculture.

    In essence, you purchase shares of a producers produce. The grower gets the money in advance usually and the purchaser gets produce on a regular, seasonal basis.

    Right. CSA is the acronym or letters stand for Canadian Standards Assoc.

    Also, in reference to what most on the board would probalby mention is Community Supported Agriculture, where a grower has a list of customers agreeing to buy their products.

    Ah ha!

    I believe that in the context I am reading it, Community Supported Agriculture is the one I am looking for. I do appriciate the help, the articles make a bit more sense, when you know what you are reaing...

    Thank you!!!

    Only if he's a dear.

    Well, I don't know about that. There are times when I'm typing away thinking, "darned husband!" :D
