Thanksgiving dinner cost up slightly
The retail cost of menu items for a classic Thanksgiving dinner including turkey, stuffing, cranberries, pumpkin pie and all the basic trimmings increased less than 1 percent this year, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation.
The AFBF’s 27th annual informal price survey of classic items found on the Thanksgiving dinner table indicates the average cost of this year’s feast for 10 is $49.48, a 28-cent price increase from last year’s average of $49.20.
"Thanksgiving is a day with special meaning to farm families, as it is generally a target date for the conclusion of fall harvests," said McHenry County Farm Bureau Manager Dan Volkers. "After months of long hours, laboring to feed the nation, farmers are ready to rejoin their families and prepare for next year’s growing season. We would like to thank them for producing our nation’s safe, affordable and abundant food supply."
