Part 1 with David Stelzer, founder and CEO of Azure Standard

David Stelzer is a pioneer of healthy soils and organic foods. His family has farmed in the Pacific Northwest for over 100 years. He is the founder and CEO of Azure Standard, a leading producer and nationwide distributor of natural, organic, and non-GMO food.

David first started farming organically as a teenager in the 1970s, and his passion for providing nourishing, healthful foods grown in healthy soil without the use of harmful chemicals has only continued to grow.

At age 20 he started selling the grain grown on the family farm to areas across the Pacific Northwest -- from the back of his old pickup truck. In 1987, this successful adventure grew into Azure Standard to provide not only the grain he grew but other produce, dried and bulk foods, and health products requested by his growing base of customers.

David and Azure went on to create a unique delivery method of community Drops that evolved organically into an independent organic food distribution network which now covers 38 states – including Hawaii and Alaska – with over 4,000 community Drops in local communities. Azure also ships by parcel carrier so all areas of the country can get high quality foods at reasonable prices.

As Azure has grown over the years David continues to pioneer new methods of growing and producing food. This includes Azure’s Unifine grain milling capabilities, along with value-added products and expanded distribution using direct-to-consumer marketing. Throughout this growth, David continues his focus on helping people find health and wellness through the produce and products Azure offers, and by growing nutrient-rich foods in healthy soil on the thriving Azure Farm.

David passionately believes in supporting small and family-owned farms, suppliers, and businesses. He always advocates for healthy and abundant living while aspiring to remain on the forward edge in providing truly healthful food to a world hungry for quality ingredients grown using fair and sustainable farming methods.

David is happily married for over 30 years. He and his wife and their 11 children continue the family tradition of working the farm together.
