Sara Andrews, Founder & CEO
Sara is passionate about accelerating the pace of regenerative agriculture by contributing to a food system that works with nature instead of against it. She believes that a food system should be climate friendly (sequestering carbon and protecting biodiversity), equitable, and nourishing.
The granddaughter of Montana ranchers, Sara has worked in various parts of the food ecosystem —including as an agricultural policy advisor to U.S. Senator Max Baucus and the U.S. Senate Finance Committee and as a consultant with the NGO TechnoServe in Zimbabwe. In addition, she has spent many years as a strategy consultant helping to grow and build emerging businesses within large organizations.
After spending time working in Zimbabwe, she realized that a new type of food company was needed to provide the type of products that customers want. She founded Bumbleroot to provide nutrient dense, delicious food and beverage products with full supply chain transparency to consumers and to celebrate the farmers, ranchers, and harvesters contributing to a regenerative food system.
Sara holds a bachelor’s degree and a Masters of Business Administration from the University of Notre Dame.
