After four wonderful years of placing orders with Azure Standard and providing my family with really great options at affordable prices, I am thrilled to share them with you! If you value healthy living, non-GMO and organic practices surrounding food and products, and recognize the value in both saving money and voting with your dollars, you’re in the right place.
Here, we understand that naturally grown foods are instrumental in producing a long and satisfying life. We’d like to see more farmers and home gardeners turn to natural organic growing practices, so we do what we can to not only support the organic farmer, but also provide as many organic products as possible.
We chose to call our business Azure Standard, to signify by the name what we are attempting to do. Azure is a shade of blue which has been associated with law, justice, and honesty. In raising an azure standard, we want to place an honest standard in the marketing of food. We feel that the correct way to effect a positive change is not to attack the way it is being done, but to begin to do it right.
We are dedicated to the ‘organic principle’ of cooperating with nature and we pray others will join us so that we may once again see prosperity in our land.
-David Stelzer | Azure Founder and CEO
How Does It Work?
You have two options when shopping with Azure. You can either place an order anytime to ship directly to your home, OR you can join a drop site where you will meet a truck monthly to pickup your order along with other like-minded individuals (I have met some really incredible people at our Azure drops over the years). I have always gone with the later option, and enjoy the benefit of getting a big bulk order of fantastic items without paying a fortune in shipping. Everything comes from Oregon first, and is then delivered all over the US.
Azure reduces waste and saves you money by connecting directly with the independent growers and food producers, shortening the cycle and handling of your food. You have access to organic farm-fresh veggies and dry bulk foods, grass-fed dairy and frozen meats, raw honey and non-GMO oils, packaged foods, nutritional supplements and beauty products. After you place the items in your website cart, our warehouse team in Moro, Oregon pulls them off the shelf like your own personal shopper. Your items are then packed in recycled boxes under your name, and your order is put on a truck that delivers straight to you. You’re a part of the Azure community in your own neighborhood, meeting a fully stocked natural grocery on wheels – coming directly to you.
What Kind of Things Can I Buy?
Azure offers everything from food, health and beauty, household and family, nutritional supplements, and even outdoor and garden items. Over the years I have purchased everything from bulk flour to dairy products, growing seeds to bulk produce, our holiday turkeys, non-toxic cleaning supplies, vitamins/supplements, and much more!
In fact, I placed a really huge order this month that is a great example of what you can get for your family. This order was a little over $500 and the only thing not pictured above was my Mary’s Free-Range Turkey which I placed directly into our deep freezer when we got home.
