I've mentioned ordering from Azure Standard before so I thought that I would show you what I got in my last order. Before I started ordering from Azure I was completely overwhelmed by their website and all the products that they have available to order. I was also confused by the shipping process, so much so that Mr. Taffy pretty much had to figure that out for me. You probably won’t have near the trouble, I have an unhealthy aversion to the telephone. It’s annoying sometimes, to both my husband and me. I can call 911 when necessary though.
This is a picture of part of my order. Everything basically comes in bags, which they ship in sealed boxes. I ordered:
- a gallon of wild berry raw honey
- 25 pounds of organic cane sugar
- Echinacea Tea
- Cinnamon Chips (not like chocolate chips, just raw cinnamon to add to tea or cider or spice bags)
- Coconut Oil
- A case of Apple Chips-for snacks (not pictured)
- a gallon of apple cider vinegar (not pictured)
- sea salt
- date sugar (just to try)
- Wheat Germ-for granola
- Rolled 9 grain Flakes for breakfast
- Rolled Barley Flakes for Granola
- whole wheat elbow macaroni
- 25 pounds of red wheat flour
- 75 pounds of red wheat berries
- 50 pounds of raw sugar (Turbinado)
There were a few things that I tried to order that just didn’t come, like a Kombucha book and sprouted wheat sourdough bread. My total with shipping was just under $300. Basically everything that Azure sells is organic and GMO free. They ship out once a month and once you set up an account you can just keep adding stuff to your cart as the month progresses, just be sure to “check-out” before the monthly deadline, otherwise you have to wait another entire month to order. That’s what happened to me last month, I was so mad at myself!
I’ve never ordered cold/frozen things from Azure but my friends have and they haven’t complained. If you have specific food needs, like dairy-free or Gluten-free, Azure has tons of products for those needs as well. I think their shipping is really reasonable too, mine was twenty two dollars for almost 250 lbs. of food!
When you set up an account, you also will choose your drop off location, unless you are ordering an incredible amount of food, then they will just drive the semi to your house and deliver it. I’m not entirely sure how my husband figured it out, but they have a handy dandy phone number that you can call for information-I’m sure YOU won’t have an issue with that! haha! I used to have to pick up my order about 40 minutes West of me, since then, my friend from our fellowship has become a pick-up spot, she orders enough from them monthly and doesn’t need my help but let’s me pick up there—she’s so SWEET!
With the rising cost of food and the dangers in GMO’s and processed food, it really makes sense for a family, especially a big one, to order food through Azure. But that’s just my opinion, take it or leave it! lol
