Last week, I posted general tips on how to order from Azure Standard, and today, I’m sharing more specific information. If you’re in Iowa/Illinois/Indiana and looking for a drop, you’re likely part of my delivery route – the Q1 line. If you put in your zip code here, you will see all of the established drop routes pop up.
The little pins on this map represent the established drops within a 200 mile radius of my zip code. This is a really handy little interactive map. If you click on the pin closest to you, you can see the exact address for the delivery drop, and also the drop coordinator’s name.
If you’re part of the Iowa/Illinois/Indiana delivery route, the order deadline for a March delivery is 6 pm Tuesday (March 25). That means you have to get your order in by 6 pm to have a delivery in March. If you submit your order at 6:01 pm, you’ll have to wait until April. Just a word of caution, if you’re a procrastinator like me. 😀
But anyway, this post is supposed to be about my order! And here it is:
We’re going to be gone for half of March so I didn’t order as much as I might have otherwise. I’m excited to get a bunch of organic potatoes for a wonderful price since I’m finally out of potatoes from my garden. I’m splitting those 50 lb with a friend. I’ve also got a bunch of blueberries and butter and baking powder on this order.
I’ve ordered these blueberries before and we love them. They aren’t organic, but the grower pledges to use no pesticides unless absolutely necessary. I love that Azure Standard gives this level of details on the products they sell!
Direct links to items I’m ordering are here:
Other things I usually order:
A couple other details I forgot to include on my post last week – Azure requires a $50 order or there’s a $5 handling fee. There’s also a shipping surcharge to pay Covenant Ranch Trucking for delivering the goodies to us – and that is 8% of the order total – but I believe that depends on your location. You might notice that on my order (picture #2), it only includes a subtotal. That’s because my order can change – they might run out of those fabulous potatoes, for example, and I won’t get them. I’m not charged until my goodies leave the warehouse. At that point, I’ll get a confirmation email with my order total on it that will include the exact order plus the 8% shipping and handling charge.
If you’re on a delivery route, you should connect with Covenant Ranch Trucking on Facebook and sign up for delivery information text alerts here. It’s nice to have these texts in case there are any delivery delays due to weather or truck issues. In all the years I’ve been ordering from Azure Standard, there have only been two bad delays – the last two months – due to the stellar winter weather we’ve had this year.
And that’s that. Hopefully, between last week’s post and this post, you should have a pretty good idea about how to order from Azure Standard!
Did you get your order in? I’d love to hear what you got!
