We are a family that loves being outside. Since we were kids, we have always had animals to chase after, gardens to tend, and fields to run around in. Now that we have kids of our own, we want to make sure those experiences continue in a way that’s safe for them, and safe for the environment when used as directed. Shop Now
Our family has been farming for generations, so we know that pesticides are necessary. But we had concerns — especially once we had kids running around. We wanted a pesticide that was tough on pests, but not on humans and pets.
When our dad was alive, he used natural products for all types of applications. We knew from working alongside him that you could also use types of lime as a pesticide, but traditional hydrated lime is caustic and dangerous to work with. With the help of a chemist (and a lot of patience!) we created a patent pending, first-of-its-kind solution: a non-caustic lime and limestone formula that is tough on bugs but totally safe for humans and pets when used as directed.
Since then, we’ve found a great number of uses for First Saturday Lime, and we want to tell anybody who will listen how useful First Saturday Lime is!
Who's the Frog?
When we started out creating First Saturday Lime, a little frog became a frequent visitor to our warehouse. We called him Ricardo, after our Dad, Richard, and Ricardo stuck around until First Saturday Lime launched. Not only do frogs signify a healthy environment, but they’re naturally pest-controlling creatures just like us! Now we put a little Ricardo on every bag of First Saturday Lime.
