Thanksgiving Prices

A new survey shows the average Wisconsin family will pay about 2 percent more for their Thanksgiving spread this year.

According to the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation, the cost to feed 8 people this year is $39.35 -- that's up $0.82.

The federation says the jump is thanks to higher prices for turkey and dairy products.

But, there is good news for all your sweet potato lovers. The average price for a 3 pound bag is only a $1.30 this year down from $2.56 a year earlier.
