If your family serves a traditional Easter ham, you might have to dig a little deeper into your wallet to make that meal happen.

Ham prices have been higher than usual for the past two years because the cost of pig feed has gone up. On the wholesale level, ham is selling for about 75 cents a pound this spring, which is in line with last year. But that price is well above the average 55 cents per pound in the previous five years.

Recent retail prices in grocery stores were around $2.20 per pound.
