Since the 1800s…
Since the 1800s, LITTLE SPRING has provided pure water for our FAMILY. Now, we want to share it with yours.
The Petersen family and our pioneer ancestors have been blessed by a small, mountain spring called Little Spring since the 1800s when we first settled in the beautiful Bear Lake Valley on the border of Utah and Idaho. The family’s homestead was and still is nestled in a lovely spot between Swan Peak, the tallest mountain in the area, and stunning Bear Lake, known as the “Caribbean of the Rockies” for its vibrant, blue water.
Little Spring is a natural spring a short way up a nearby canyon from our home where the pure water bubbles up to the surface from an underground aquifer. Since settling here, Little Spring has provided our family’s drinking water, cared for a dairy farm, watered a campground, and even raised one of the first raspberry patches in the valley, something for which Bear Lake is famous.
Much of the work to protect and improve the natural spring was done by “Grandpa” Bryan L. Booth. Without him, Little Spring wouldn’t exist as we know it today. He is such a loved and meaningful part of our family that we still refer to him as “Grandpa Booth” even though he’s passed and we’ve recently welcomed the 5th generation since his time. Grandpa Booth’s descendants have known all our lives that Little Spring was special.
