The Cost of the Thanksgiving Meal

19 Nov

Agfact #19

On the average,the Cost of Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings is just under $5 a person.

 

A holiday meal for 10 only costs $49.48. American Farm Bureau estimated that the cost of the Thanksgiving dinner is up only 1/2 percent from last year.  While the Turkey increased slightly in price, other items like whipping cream-milk-sweat potatoes-pumpkin pie mix-peas-fresh cranberries cost less then last year.

This Thanksgiving season take the time to reflect on the farm families that raise your food.  Trust me your Thanksgiving meal did not just come from the grocery store.  U.S. Farmers and Ranchers work hard every day battling Mother Nature to raise crops and livestock for your dinner table. Do you have question about farming? Just ask me, an American Farmer, and I would be happy to share information about farming.
