There was a time not too long ago when people knew exactly where their food originated.

I remember as a kid getting farm eggs from my dad's relatives, Fred and Irene Teal, who lived near Euclid, Minn. I also recall that once or twice, Dad bought some live chickens from a farmer he knew.


And back then, it also wasn't unusual to buy a half-side of beef or pork from the local meat market that was raised in the immediate area by someone the butcher knew.
