As the calendar turns from October to November, the focus turns from pumpkins to turkeys as we look ahead to Thanksgiving.
According to the Virginia Farm Bureau, Thanksgiving Dinner will cost $50.01 on average this year to feed ten adults.
That price includes turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas, cranberries, a carrot and celery tray, and pumpkin pie with whipped cream for dessert.
The cost is about $3 more than last year; some people attribute that to the improving economy and higher livestock prices.
