Company offers a seasonal Farm Share Program (“Program”)
The Company is providing you, as a Member, and as a part of the Program the following:
A weekly basket/box of greens and produce that equals the value of the program and that is in compliance with the terms of your membership (8 weeks between April 20th and June 11th, 2022). Members who join the full program will receive 8 weeks of greens and produce. Members who join the bi-weekly program will receive 4 weeks of greens and produce.
Members will pick up their weekly produce basket/box at their chosen pick up site in Houston, Texas, Cypress, Texas, Tomball, Texas or Brenham, Texas at the designated time. If a member is unable to pick up at the designated time and location, the member agrees to contact Michael Marchand at Whitehurst Farm via text at 713-724-3778 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a mutually agreeable pick up time at the farm PRIOR TO the designated pick up time. The member understands that s/he will forfeit their weekly basket/box (due to the perishable nature of the products) if s/he does not pick up the weekly basket/box at the designated time & place, and does not arrange for a mutually agreeable pick up time.
Company also reserves the right to make appropriate and reasonable substitutions and or additions based on the nature of what the Company is providing.
SEASONAL COMMITMENT & RISK
By purchasing membership in the Program, you acknowledge that your membership may have multiple monthly payments (based on the payment plan chosen) and that you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation.
You will receive an invoice for each successive payment at the rate of your chosen payment plan.
We are trade-skilled, experienced farmers used to dealing with variable and extreme weather and pests. Prior farm share investment has allowed us to substantially reduce weather and freeze risk by growing inside protective cover structures - greenhouses and high tunnels. These structures contain side walls, fronts and backs and can be completely closed in the event of a freeze. We cannot guarantee that we can mitigate all risk so there exists a chance that some crops or portion of a farm share may not be available at times. By being a part of this Farm Share program, you are taking on the risk of supporting a business directly connected to these challenging conditions and the related reward or scarcities that come with each season. Farm share members commit for the full season as established by the seasonal registration.
We offer two (2) Payment Plans for the Farm Share program:
The Pay in Full Plan is an upfront payment for the entire season providing us with much needed capital at the start of the season and as such, there is a discount on the price of a seasonal payment.
The Split Payment Plan is meant to give more flexibility in the payment schedule and allow our Farm Share program to be more inclusive. It is important to note that the Split Payment Plan still requires a commitment to participate for the entire 8 week season.
Participation in the program is non-refundable unless there is a customer service concern that cannot be resolved by mutual agreement. To express a customer service concern, please contact Michael Marchand via text at 713-724-3778 or via email at email@example.com.
If you cancel your participation in the program based on an unresolved customer service concern, you may use your program benefits until the end of your then-current program term. Company may submit periodic charges (e.g., monthly) without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Company reasonably could act.

You acknowledge that the preceding paragraph shall apply to all content, merchandise and services available through the Site. Because some states do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages, all of the above disclaimers or exclusions may not apply to all users.
Company controls and operates the Site from the United States. Company makes no representation that materials on the Site are appropriate or available for use outside the United States. If you choose to access this Site from outside the United States, you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
If any part of these Terms shall be held or declared to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be ineffective but shall not affect any other part of these Terms, and in such event, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions.

Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court.
Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts.
Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award.
YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both you and Company agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
