The American Farm Bureau says the average cost of a Thanksgiving feast for 10 people is about $48.91 this year – one cent more than last year’s average.

That averages out to be about $5 a person, the Farm Bureau said in a release Thursday.

The turkey itself averages out at about $20.80 for a 16-pound bird. That’s about $1.30 per pound, down 4 percent from 2018.

About 90 percent of Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with a turkey feast, with about 50 percent serving both turkey and ham.
