Famed science fiction writer, Isaac Asimov, talked about this way back in at least the 1950s, but probably much earlier. While I don't have any details on what he might have said back then, when he was writing under the pseudonym, Paul French, he talked about it in his "Lucky Starr" SF series. The way he explained it was using a large variety of crossbred yeast cultures to make all kinds of food directly off rocks (really, rock powder). We have had the technology to do this for decades (maybe over 100 years), but we never really had the need. Besides, the political climate always included maintaining farming, just to keep the farmers from starting to think for themselves about the possibilities.
