The Indiana Farm Bureau says the main reason for the increase in 2015 is higher prices for turkey.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Farm Bureau's annual informal Thanksgiving "market basket" survey found a 16-pound turkey, ingredients for stuffing and pumpkin pie and other components of a traditional holiday meal total an average price of $50.33.

That is $3.40 higher than last year's total and $2.21 higher than 2013's total, but it's only 28 cents higher than 2012.

The Farm Bureau says the main reason for the increase in 2015 is higher prices for turkey, which can be attributed to disruptions in production due to the outbreak of avian influenza earlier this year on some turkey farms. Indiana's survey showed an average price of $1.57 per pound for turkey, which is 26 cents per pound higher than last year.
