Bloomberg featured American Farm Bureau Federation’s informal Thanksgiving dinner cost survey in an article. “Aside from less expensive turkeys, declines in a gallon of milk, a 3-pound bag of sweet potatoes, a 1-pound bag of green peas and a dozen bread rolls are helping ease the burden on consumer wallets, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 33rd annual survey,” noted Bloomberg.

The average cost of this year’s meal for a family of 10 is $48.80, a decrease from $49.12 last year. For more on AFBF’s survey results, check out the news release.
