Food prices in the state rose by just under three percent since last spring.
That’s according to a survey by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau.
Spokeswoman Sarah Hetke says they looked at 16 common things that end up in grocery carts. She says nine went up, and the overall bill was $51.57.
Hetke says the price of bacon and ground chuck went up the most. One pound of bacon cost 56 cents more than last spring. Eggs and milk saw the biggest drops. Milk prices were down 33 cents, to $2.63 a gallon.
