About Us

About Us

The RFSI team brings more than two decades of experience in agriculture, food systems, investing, research, media, and events.

Our goal is to work across diverse groups of funders and stakeholders to mobilize more capital for regenerative food and agriculture projects. We also aim to expand the distribution of information and tools that communicate the financial, ecological, and social benefits of investments in a regenerative food system.

Capital, from many diverse sources, is critical to the expansion of a regenerative food system.

We hope you will join us in growing this crucial community.

The Team

Sarah Day Levesque
Managing Director

Sarah has spent more than 15 years working to connect agriculture and food systems stakeholders to the information and networks they need to be successful. She is committed to contributing to a healthy and productive path forward for the food system and for the past six years, Sarah has worked closely with regenerative farmers in her role leading the development and execution of educational experiences at Acres USA, a Questor Regen Co. company. Sarah is a firm believer in the power of learning and enrichment experiences to bring communities of all kinds together for positive change and in late 2018, Sarah started Regenerative Food Systems Investment to address to address a lack of attention, awareness, and capital being given to investment opportunities in regenerative agriculture and food. 

Before joining Acres USA in late 2016, Sarah spent a decade in agricultural media, where she played a key role in the development of successful event and media brands, including Women in Agribusiness and Organic & Non-GMO Forum, and also served as Editor-in-Chief of Global AgInvesting Media.

Sarah holds an M.S. in Agriculture and Resource Economics and an M.S. in International Agricultural Development from University of California, Davis.
