Buenavista Hosts Annual Cheese Contest

Cheese PleaseThe central Plaza de los Remedios in Buenavista del Norte hosts to the 13th annual contest to choose the best goat cheese from the hamlet of Teno Alto from 11 a.m. today. Those of you thinking a cheese contest is a bit lame, clearly haven't tasted the cheese, the superior quality of which is owing to the ideal conditions in which the goats live.

Gorgeous GoatsThis traditionally made cheese can now be purchased at various points around the island. Tomorrow, Sunday, you can meet the goats themselves too, when Buenavista has its livestock fair, romeria and fiestas in honor of San Antonio Abad.
