IRWINDALE, Calif. — When you think of sriracha, many people think of the 'rooster sauce' made by Huy Fong Foods, Inc., but did you know the process starts in farmer Tom Muller's pepper field near Woodland, California? 'Peppers are grown all over the state of California. We just found a little niche in Northern California, and in this Woodland area they seem to do very well,' said Muller. Sometime around the end of March or early April, Muller begins the planting process. It's delicate work, where farm equipment and human hands come together.
