There are 4 informants with the criteria of a farmer, married, and have worked for more than 1 year. Sampling in this study uses purposive sampling. Data collection in this study used semi-structured interviews and non-participant observation. Data analysis in this study consists of data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion. The result shows a picture of the psychological well-being of the four informants, three of whom were forced to work as farmers, and one other informant was proud of his work as a farmer. Furthermore, the four informants have a good relationship with other people, can make decisions, can adapt to the difficult conditions experienced, and have life goals to be achieved. There were some differences regarding the way the four informants developed themselves. Male farmers tend to be more active in social activities in the community. Meanwhile, female farmers spend more time doing work as housewives after farming so they are less actively involved in social activities in the community. The factors that affect the psychological well-being of the four informants are (1) material factors consisting of support from fellow farmers and family, adjustment to good self, and income, (2) immaterial, namely gratitude, sincerity, and patience.
