Welcome to Ivory Oak!
I'm Mary Anne Duren, and I founded Ivory Oak Heritage Farm in 2012. We are a growing goat dairy in Austin, MN specializing in producing the finest raw goat milk we can for our goat milk soap products.
We have a strong emphasis on organic management and our animals are raised with sustainable and regenerative farming practices at the forefront of what we do.
As a kid, I was sick frequently and suffered from chronic stomach aches & digestive issues, congestion, and was sick more often than the average.
When conventional medicine stopped helping us "get better", we found the alternative medicine of homeopathy & herbal supplements and the importance of a wholesome diet to promote health and wellness. I was sensitive to cow dairy, so it was at that young age that I was introduced to goat dairy products.
Because of my background, I knew that when I started my farm we were going to do things a little differently. We were going to be a farm that connected people to sustainable products. A place committed to inspiring better care of the earth, the animals, ourselves, and each other.
