It's going to cost more to feed the pilgrims this Thanksgiving. Each year, the Virginia Farm Bureau puts out a survey of grocery stores which gauges the cost of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

This year's 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 for dessert -- pumpkin pie with whipped cream.

The Farm Bureau adds that the cost varies depending on the county you live in, with the highest cost topping $60 in rural Charlotte County.
