VIRGINIA - The price of $50.01 for a Thanksgiving feast is up slightly from last year.
Virginia's Farm Bureau has released an informal survey report.
It estimates cost of turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas and cranberries for ten adults.
It also includes a carrot and celery tray and pumpkin pie with whipped cream.
The prices used don't factor in promotional sales or coupons.
The price is up nearly three dollars from last year, which experts say could be due to an improved economy and higher livestock prices.
The prices vary by county somewhat.
In the survey, Pittsylvania County meals came in at $53.45 while Floyd County was about $44.10.
