Daniel Mays - Owner, Farm Manager

Daniel grew up in Chester County, PA, where through his Waldorf and Quaker educations he developed a respect for nature and a sense of environmental responsibility. Since then he has studied math and physics, taught at a boarding high school, bicycled through Mexico, earned a graduate degree in environmental engineering, and worked on a number of farms. He is passionate about farming and excited to be rooted in Scarborough. He believes farmers should be stewards of the land, not miners of its resources, and that farms should be hubs of the community, not distant sources of its calories. He also believes that economic sustainability need not be sacrificed, but rather can come directly from the union of environmental stewardship and community involvement. Daniel started Frith Farm in November of 2010.

Cricka

Cricka - Field Manager

Cricka grew up in Yarmouth next to an old dairy farm, playing in the pastures and helping his grandparents in their gardens. He graduated from New England Culinary Institute with a degree in Baking and Pastry and after a few years working in kitchens, his passion for food brought him back into the fields to learn about food from the ground up.  After working as an apprentice at Frith, Cricka sought out other farms to get an idea of how others take to the land.  He moved to Massachusetts where he worked at a large-scale organic vegetable farm, then came home to Maine to an organic poultry farm. Cricka then worked with cows at a dairy on a large-scale agritourism farm before finding his way back to Scarborough & Frith, with hopes of eventually starting his own farm.

Katia

Ana - Kitchen & Store Manager and Farm Herbalist

Ana grew up in Panama, Central America. From a young age, Ana developed a sense of connection with nature, watching her mom work on her huge garden, and her dad take care of birds and other animals. She loved the feeling of being barefoot in grass, and loved to care for and learn everything she could about wildlife. As time passed though, she struggled to find her true calling. This changed in 2015 when she moved to South Florida and started helping out at a local organic farm, where she discovered her passion for farming. In Florida, Ana also fell in love with herbal medicine, and has been studying herbs ever since. With dreams of seasons and gorgeous winters, Ana made the move to Maine, with hopes of having her own farm one day. Because of the connection she feels with all life around her, Ana feels strongly about farming in a way that mimics nature as much as possible, so she is excited and grateful to be an apprentice at Frith Farm. When not farming, Ana loves to read, cook, swim and make people laugh.
