The American Farm Bureau reports the cost of a full thanksgiving dinner has not gone up significantly since last year.

 

Anne Marie Moss with the Oregon Farm Bureau says the cost surveys indicate it will only cost about 20 cents more; or about $49.48 cents for a feast for 10 people.  "If you're talking about a family of 10, that's just under $5 per person. So it just kind of emphasizing that thanks to America’s farmers and ranchers that work really hard to produce our nutritious safe food, but also do it in an efficient manor to keep cost down for everybody. And that's just something we can be thankful for beyond the tastiness of a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings."

 

Moss says Oregon is unique in that our agriculture is so diverse, that you can actually produce a complete Thanksgiving Dinner, including flowers with all Oregon products.
