Cost of cranberries… up. Cost of turkey… up. Cost of a traditional Thanksgiving feast… down. That’s what the Missouri Farm Bureau has figured for Missourians. Spokesman Diane Olson says last year a feast for ten cost 34 dollars and 46 cents in the state. This year she says that cost is more than 20 cents less, meaning residents can stuff themselves full of stuffing for about 3-42 a person. Olson points out Missourians are getting a break from the national trend which jumped a dollar this year and comes in nearly four dollars more than Missouri’s $34.24 feast. She says that’s reason enough for Missourian’s to give thanks this holiday. She points out that the Farm Bureau uses specific brands and goods sizes to ensure prices are comparable to the national average.
