New Management

Wednesday 5th June 2019


The Partners of Dornauf Dairies (trading as Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm Cafe) and Lindi Dornauf would like to make a joint statement regarding a change of management at the Cafe.

It is with many emotions that Dornauf Dairies and Lindi will be heading in a new and different direction, effective today. Lindi’s aspirations of owning the cafe business were not possible, and therefore Lindi closes one chapter to take permanent leave of her role as Cafe Manager and open another to pursue new interests and explore further opportunities.

The development of the business from a kiosk, in the late 1980’s and over the ensuing years, to a successful and popular hospitality destination in the north of the State can be justly attributed in no small part to Lindi and her hardworking team. We would like to thank Lindi for her contribution to the business over those years, and wish her the very best in the future. We look forward to seeing Lindi take up the reins with the same characteristic passion in her new endeavours.  As a daughter, sister and aunt, Lindi will always be part of the success story of this family business.

Lindi would like to say a personal thankyou to the current and former staff and the regular customers over the past 24 years for the many wonderful memories, many of whom Lindi now considers to be family and friends.

The Partners of Dornauf Dairies continue to remain committed to developing the Christmas Hills Raspberry Cafe and Brand into the future while providing new & exciting experiences for all our Patrons.

Dornauf Dairies would also like to formally announce that Elise Chilcott has been appointed as the new café manager.  Elise brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and business acumen to the role and we are looking forward to working with her moving forward.  Elise can be contacted during business hours on 03 63 622 186 or alternatively via email at:

In the meantime, it’s is business as usual as we look forward to the ongoing support of our loyal customers and the regular flow of new faces coming through our doors.
