Turkey prices jack up ahead of Thanksgiving, here’s what to expect

Expect the prices for a turkey to soar ahead of the holiday season.

The American Farm Bureau Federation announced that “families can expect to pay record high prices at the grocery store for turkey” because of inflation and bird flu.

Retail prices of turkey reached a whopping $6.70 per pound in September, in comparison to the last high record at $5.88 per pound in November 2015.

Bird flu is also expected to rack up prices, affecting an estimated 46 million birds across 40 states.

Some ways to lessen the stress of the price is to focus on side dishes and appetizers, or even substitutes for turkey like duck, chicken, steak, or go completely meat-free!
