Mon, 18 Nov 2013 18:49:51 GMT — It might cost you a little less to feed your family this Thanksgiving holiday. According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, feeding a group of 10 adults will cost $49.04. That's 44 cents less than last year. The menu includes turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas and cranberries. It also includes a relish tray of carrots and celery and, of course, pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Farmers say nationwide turkey prices should be slightly lower than last year. Peas, rolls and stuffing are also expected to be a few cents cheaper this year. Sweet potatoes prices may be slightly higher. The American Farm Bureau Federation admits their study is unscientific. The Virgina Farm Bureau said they expect the cost of a Thanksgiving dinner to go up by more than $2.00 this year. In central New York, Wegman's says it is trying to hold prices on many Thanksgiving staples.
