Jason Brown had a five-year, $37 million contract with the St. Louis Rams but decided it was all meaningless – and just walked away from football.

Brown quit the sport he worked his life to master so he could become a farmer, even though he had never farmed a day in his life. What he was thinking? He was thinking about service.

In 2012, he “decided to step out on faith” starting a farm in Louisburg, North Carolina called First Fruits Farm that donates the first fruits of every harvest to food pantries.

“We were blessed with gleaning and harvest opportunities… where more than 10,000 pounds of cucumbers and 100,000 pounds of sweet potatoes were donated for local hunger relief efforts,” he wrote on his website.

“More than 600 volunteers lent a helping hand.”
