Arkansas Farm Bureau Survey:

Cost of Thanksgiving feast lower again

For the second year in a row it will cost families less to prepare the classic Thanksgiving meal, due largely to significant declines in the average cost of frozen turkey and a gallon of milk. According to Arkansas Farm Bureau’s 31st annual survey, it will cost $44.84 for a family of 10, or $4.48 per person, to enjoy the feast. Last year’s average was $45.25 and this year’s price is $1.39 lower than 2014.

The statewide average is based on responses from members of the Farm Bureau Women’s Committee and other volunteers who surveyed food prices at nine grocery stores and supermarkets across the state. They were asked to report the “best in-store price” of 12 items included in the meal. They are allowed to take advantage of advertised specials, excluding discount coupons and purchase requirements.
