The Virginia Farm Bureau has released its annual Thanksgiving survey of grocery stores. It indicates that feeding a group of 10 adults will cost $48.03. That's $4.46 more than last year.

The survey menu includes turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas and cranberries. It also includes a relish tray of carrots and celery and, of course, pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

The cost could be higher or lower depending upon location. The survey found the highest average cost for a Thanksgiving meal was in Keysville in Charlotte County at $60.59. The cheapest was $39.03 in Ruckersville in Greene County.
