FENTON, MO (KTVI) - Four years ago Justin Leszcz left his job as a successful car salesman to become a farmer.  He traded is his suits for blue jeans and rented a plot of farm land in Fenton.

"I was a really good salesman and I was making lots of money and doing really well.  But I found out money doesn't buy happiness," says Justin.

Farming may not be a glamorous life, plowing fields and picking weeds.  But for Justin, he says he's never been happier.

He is succeeding at farming.  He grows specialty items that he sells to local restaurants.  Everything he grows is organic.  No pesticides are used.

Justin says he doesn't think about the future.  He is living for the moment and right now he's living his dream on the farm.
