In One Size Fits None Anderson follows diverse farmers across the United States: a South Dakota bison rancher who provides an alternative to the industrial feedlot; an organic vegetable farmer in Florida who harvests microgreens; a New Mexico super-small farmer who revitalizes communities; and a North Dakota midsize farmer who combines livestock and grain farming to convert expensive farmland back to native prairie. The use of these nontraditional agricultural techniques show how varied operations can give back to the earth rather than degrade it. This book will resonate with anyone concerned about the future of food in America, providing guidance for creating a better, regenerative agricultural future.

“One Size Fits None should be required reading for anyone who yearns for a clear-headed and informed account of our dysfunctional corporate food system, which also examines hopeful models for reform.”—Andrew Furman, author of Bitten: My Unexpected Love Affair with Florida and Goldens Are Here
