Where your food originates

I caught the back end of a report on the news this morning that suggested a large number of children didn't know where their food came from and that bacon and pork chops come from cows. Some, apparently, even think cows lay eggs.
It's not a new problem, or one specific to children. I remember the story of GB prop Lee Crooks when on a tour of New Zealand. On asking for some bacon to go with breakfast (all fit professional atheletes back in his day, oh dear me yes) and told there was none, he remarked "A country full of sheep and you've got no bacon?"
