Azure Standard Order

by GettingFreedom on August 31, 2012

 


Azure Standard has been coming to my area for quite a while and it’s been such a blessing!  Their organic produce prices are hard to beat.

For this specific Azure Standard order I got::

  • Nancy’s Kefir, Peach
  • 5 lbs. Bulk Raisins
  • 5 lbs Sliced  Almonds
  • 3 pkgs Gardening Seeds {planting in the greenhouse this winter}
  • 10 lbs  Biokleen Laundry Powder 
  • 1lb  Oregon Spice Arrowroot Powder          
  • 1 lb Oregon Spice Garlic Powder
  • 16 lbs Organic Oranges
  • 40 lbs Organic Red Onions   
  • 25 lbs Organic Carrots
  • 40 lbs Organic Apples

After I figure in the shipping costs, it comes out to $1.10/# {minus the laundry soap which was $11.75 and the gardening seeds}.  Not too shabby!  Especially considering that organic produce is very hard to come by around here–and organic apples typically run around $2 a pound by themselves {we’re not even talking about the cost of almonds!}  Considering apples are  one of the dirty dozen, I try to buy organic ones a much as our budget allows.  Organic Unsweetened Apple Juice is utterly amazing, too! :)

What is Azure Standard?

Azure Standard is a food co-op that delivers one a month to many states across the country.  While they aren’t everywhere {yet!} they have expanded quite a bit in the last year or so.

One thing with Azure is that you do have to have a minimum order, but it’s per group and not per person.  However, if your order is under $50 you will have an added $5 fee.  But–it’s hard to not have an order over $50 and you can always tack it on a friends’ order. :)

Not only do they sell organic produce but they also sell oats, wheat berries, flour, gluten free products, non-grocery items…basically they are an online organic grocer with awesome prices!  

Where Does Azure Standard Deliver?

You can find out where they deliver by downloading this pdf file , which will also let you know what their delivery schedule is.  If an area near you isn’t on the list–call them and try to set one up!

In order to see the prices you will have to set up a free account.  I think it’s fun to browse through their online catalog to look and see what all they offer.  I’ve not heard of a lot of the things they sell and we’ve found some new favorites this way.

I have to tell you, Azure not only has great prices, but amazing customer service–and I love what they stand for!

Do you order from Azure Standard?  I would love to know what your favorites are!

We try to order monthly from Azure Standard. Some of our favorites are the bulk items like wheat, oats, beans, baking soda, etc.

We also love the organic apples. We order the box full as well and not an apple is wasted. You just can’t beat it. We also love the carrots! Fantastic!

How do you store your onions? I’m thinking of trying them.

@Dana–Those are all of our favorites, too! We go through a ridiculous amount of oats around here {well wheat and beans, too} and bulk is the easiest/cheapest route for us.

As for the onions, this is the first time I’ve ever ordered this many. I plan to dice/freeze the majority of them. And for the others, I’m hoping to use them in freezer meals and some canning projects I’m wanting to tackle. I plan to post my progress. :)

We buy yellow onions and put them in panty hose or knee highs and hang them up. Drop an onion in, knot the material, drop in another, knot the material. Keep going until you don’t have enough room to put another onion. Then hang the onions in a cool area. I just cut the legs apart of panty hose. The material allows the onions to breathe. We get our onions in the summer and will still have fresh onions at Christmas.

LOVE that idea for storing onions! My walk-in pantry would be perfect for that.
