Win an Alaskan Bison Hide!

Posted by on

This is something we've wanted to do for a long time, so thanks so much for being here and joining in on the fun!

Since our move to our own dedicated kitchen in late 2017, we've been looking for opportunities to buy local Alaskan food for our meals and snacks. It's been challenging and there is still a lot of work to be done (like starting our own Heather's Choice Farm some day...) but we've had a couple of successes. In 2018, we started buying grass-fed bison from Delta Junction for our best-selling Dark Chocolate Chili. We quickly realized that at the rate we were going, we would need to buy upwards of one whole bison per month! That's crazy!

In an effort to honor these big, beautiful animals, we wanted to have the hide tanned from one of our very first bison that we bought for the business. It took nearly eight months for us to get this back from the taxidermist, but it is GORGEOUS!


We wanted to host a little contest to giveaway this incredible bison hide to someone in our audience. Brad had the awesome idea...what if we have a haiku contest?! Everyone has to write a short and sweet three line poem to be entered to win this awesome prize. I thought that sounded pretty darn reasonable!

Using the form below, give us your very best bison inspired haiku, and you will be entered to win! We can't wait to read all of your haiku submissions!

What's a haiku, you ask? A haiku is a three line poem that very rarely rhymes. The first and third lines have five syllables while the second has seven. Here's an example of mine to get your creative juices flowing...

"Bison are the best...

The make really good chili...

We need to buy more."

Ha! Needless to say I have Dark Chocolate Chili on the brain...

Please be sure to share this with your friends and invite folks to have fun with this little haiku contest, and we wish you the best of luck in coming up with the most creative bison haiku!
