David Stelzer is an organic food and healthy soil pioneer. His family has farmed in the Pacific Northwest for more than 100 years, and he is the founder and CEO of Azure Farm and 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 continued to grow since then. He first started selling grain grown on the family farm at the age of 21 from the back of his old pickup truck across the Pacific Northwest. In 1987, this successful adventure grew into Azure.
David Stelzer and Azure Standard went on to create a unique delivery method of community Drops that evolved organically into an independent organic food distribution network that now covers 38 states – including Hawaii and Alaska – with more than 4,000 community Drops in local communities. Azure has delivered organic produce and food to well over 3 million people in families across the U.S.
He continues to pioneer new methods of growing food and food production, including Azure Mill’s Unifine grain milling capabilities.
David continues his focus on helping people find health and wellness by growing nutrient-rich foods in healthy soil on the thriving Azure Farm, which has never used harmful chemicals in its entire history.
David Stelzer 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.
