Audio Slideshow: At an Organic Sprout Farm

By Madhu Rajaraman and Maggie Clark

Amy Annable, 28, is the sprout operations manager at Edrich Farms in Randallstown, Md. Annable, though she closely follows FDA guidelines for the production of this high-risk food, says her sales have declined since a massive sprout-related E. coli outbreak in Europe sickened thousands in the spring of 2011. In this audio slideshow, Annable talks about the sprouting process and the steps she takes to ensure her sprouts are safe for human consumption.
