The Bacon Bits Minion is obtained rarely from the Retainer Venture “Woodland Exploration XXV”. This is a Level 80 Venture available specifically to Botanist Class Retainers.
Since Retainers share your Levels, you’ll need to be Level 80 as a Botanist. Your Retainer will also need a minimum of 1,459 in the Gathering Stat.
That’s easily attainable, however, as even normal Vendor Gear can be used to hit it.
The Venture itself does offer a variety of Rewards, with the Minion being quite rare. Although the Venture takes 18 hours of real time to complete – and it’ll likely require multiple attempts.

These are most easily obtained from your Grand Company at the following locations:
