Welcome to Ivory Oak!
My name is Mary Anne Duren, and I founded Ivory Oak in 2012. We are a growing dairy goat farm in Austin, MN that focuses on producing the finest goat milk we can for our goat milk soaps.
As a kid, I was sick more often than normal and suffered from chronic stomach aches, digestive issues, and congestion. Alternative medicine and a good diet helped me overcome those illnesses. 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 it was going to do things a little differently. 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.
