Azure Standard: How Does it Work?

Here’s a little Q & A for you to let you know if it’s possible for you to order from my favorite food co-op, Azure Standard.  You can see some samples of my monthly grocery orders here and here.  Check out these jars of golden honey…YUM!

What is Azure Standard?

Azure Standard is a food delivery service specializing in offering top notch, organic and natural products.  These folks provide my family with amazing organic produce and groceries each month.  I am constanly blown away by their prices, especially for organic produce.  Usually their organic fruits and vegetables are LESS EXPENSIVE than the non-organic produce I can find at my local grocery stores.  They are SUPER easy to work with and incredibly nice.  Read all about Azure Standard and what they stand for here.  Are they awesome or what?

Who does Azure Standard deliver to?

Azure Standard has truck routes delivering to Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming!  Plus, they are continuing to expand as much as they are able.  If you’re from North Texas, read here about how you can encourage a drop point in the DFW area!  And, if you’re from any of the above mentioned states, click over to read their delivery schedule specifics.  Flip through the pdf file to find your state and see if there’s a drop location near you.  If there isn’t one, you may be able to call and set one up.  (That’s exactly how I did it a few years ago…I just called and set up a delivery drop point in my town!)

If you are from CO, NM, OK, KS AR, MO, TX, IA, IL, IN, LA, KY, TN, or north west part of MS – you’ll definitely want to click over to Covenant Ranch Trucking to learn about the services they provide for Azure!

If Azure Standard doesn’t have a truck route to my area, can I still order?

Yes!  If you are unable to be a part of a co-op/truck delivery route…you can still order (most items) and have them delivered UPS or by mail.  They deliver all over the U.S. and the world (if you make special arrangements).  Shipping costs may be high, but it’s worth a check. 

How often do the trucks deliver?

Azure Standard delivers once each month.  I place my order on a Thursday…I pick it up the following Tuesday.  (Every route is different, that’s just how it works for me…but talk about instant gratification!)  We all meet our truck in a designated location, unload our boxes and bags (squeal with delight over our pretty fruit and bags of oats), load our vehicles and go home.  It all takes about fifteen minutes.  Amazing.  Here’s a little field trip I took my readers on a few months ago so they could pick up my Azure Standard order with me…

Is there a minimum order?

Yes…if you’re right along the truck route, there is a minimum $550 order…but that’s total, for everyone who is ordering.  If you get a few families involved, your minimum is met pretty easily. 

Your individual order must also be at least $50.  If your order is under that amount, just combine it with a friend. 

Their prices for these organic foods are incredible!  Are there any hidden fees?

Hidden, no.  But some states (like mine) are subject to a delivery fee.  I DON’T mind the delivery charge at all.  If I didn’t have Azure Standard, I’d have to drive 2 hours one way to get food like this, and then the food prices would be a LOT higher.  My delivery charge is less than my fuel cost would be to drive the 2 hours, plus the food costs less.  I happily pay the delivery percentage on my order.

Hey, I can’t see the prices on their website!  How can I see their prices?

Call them and set up an account.  (541-467-2230)  They’ll give you an account number and password, then you can log into their site and see all their prices.    You can also fill out the form here to request  a free catalog.

Do I have to order in bulk?  I don’t have much storage space.

You can order in bulk, but you can also order small amounts of a product.  I love this feature!  You can order 50 pounds of oats, or just five pounds.  You can order an entire case of organic ketchup, or just one bottle

Does Azure Standard have a nice selection of gluten free food?

Yes.  Click here to see some of their gluten free products…then click around looking for your other favorites. 

What am I forgetting here?  What other questions do you have about Azure Standard?

    I am over here in Rhode Island and would love this. Fellow church members would like this too, as many are feeding big families. I live close enough to Conn. And Mass. Lines, that I could pick up at either state. (It takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to drive from the top of our state line with Mass, thru R.I. and make it to the Conn. line.).

    Do you know if Azure delivers to either one of the 3 states (RI, CT, MA).

    Meghan,

    I am a drop point manager for a west Omaha/Gretna Azure drop point. Please let me know if I can be of any help to you. There are several drops around the Omaha area if you settle in around here somewhere. Hope you enjoy Nebraska. I’m an Arkansas native, but my family and I have been here almost 4 years now :)

    That is wonderful! Thank you for helping her get started in NE, Christina!! Awesome!

    We currently live in CA and have a drop point very close but we are looking at moving to central MT and wonder if there are any drop points in that area?

    Do you deliver to Canada? If not…how about to Minneapolis or to Grand Forks, North Dakota or to Neche, North Dakota?
    I am looking for Organic Powdered Goats Milk Formula for infants. No additives, preservatives, hormones or antibiotics added. Do you carry this and could you deliver?
    We cannot find anything like this here in Canada and we have a 4 mth old grandson who has bad allergies. :(

    FYI: There is now a drop in the Baton Rouge, LOUISIANA area. Yay! For more information you can contact Azure and/or search on Facebook for “Azure Standard Baton Rouge Drop” group page. (PS. I’ve read about Azure from your blog and others for several years now and was so dissapointed when, years ago, I contacted them only to learn there wasn’t a drop in my area. But thanks to some locals who have worked very hard, we now have a truck heading our way every month! Yay!)

  12. Kay D says

    For those of you who live in Louisiana we now have our own route starting in October. It goes all the way in northern Louisiana across I 20 hitting Shreveport, Mindon, Ruston, and Monroe and then it goes to a couple of places in Mississippi and then heads south to cover southern Louisiana!
