Farmnivorous Services

Farmnivorous does not grow, make, or sell products. Farmnivorous is a technology service provider. To businesses that grow, make, or resell products and services, i.e. Vendors, Farmnivorous provides the Service of permitting them to list their products and services for sale and to accept orders to purchase those products and services. To all Users, Farmnivorous provides the Service of permitting them to browse and order products and services that are made available for purchase by Vendors. These Services are provided at the discretion of Farmnivorous and with the precondition that all Users agree to the terms and conditions stated in this agreement.

The Relationship between Farmnivorous, Vendors, and all Users

All orders placed by Users are contracts between the Vendors and the User. Farmnivorous does not validate or guarantee the truthfulness or legality of items listed by Vendors. Disagreements between Vendors and Users should be resolved between the Vendors and Users. Users should notify Farmnivorous of any such disagreements so that we may learn, potentially assist with mediation at our discretion, and remove Users from Farmnivorous whose actions are in conflict with the spirit and purpose of Farmnivorous, including but not limited to the terms and conditions stated here.

Your responsibility as a User

As a precondition for creating and utilizing an account on Farmnivorous, all Users must agree to the terms of this agreement. All Users also commit to truthfully and promptly notifying Farmnivorous of any concerns for misconduct asap by emailing those concerns to support@farmnivorous.com.

Cancellations & Refunds

Please email the Vendors if you need to cancel your order. Vendor contact info is provided on the order confirmation emails. When Users make a purchase, their credit cards are billed by Stripe, Inc. on behalf of the individual Vendors and all sale proceeds are remitted to Vendors’ bank accounts directly by Stripe, Inc. Because Farmnivorous does not manage Vendor accounts with Stripe, Inc., Farmnivorous cannot process refunds on behalf of Vendors.

Users agree to honor their purchase agreements subject to the following conditions for refunds:

  1. Refunds requested at least 24 hours in advance of the market at which the pick up or delivery is scheduled should be provided.
  2. User credit cards validated at the time the user places the order, but are not charged until the Vendor processes the order. If the order has been processed and the customer’s card charged, the refund will be the purchase amount less the fees charged by Stripe, Inc. to the Vendor for accepting the credit card. Those fees are 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. If the User’s order has not yet been processed, the order should be cancelled without the User’s card having been charged.
  3. For cancellations requested within the 24-hour window preceding the pick up or delivery date, and for Users who do not show up to pick up their orders, refunds are at the discretion of the Vendors and should not be expected. Vendors agree to hold items on behalf of Users who place orders on Farmnivorous and, as such, forego the opportunity to sell those products and services to others.

Liability and Legal Responsibility
