Fresher Foods, Inc., orally agreed to purchase one thousand bushels of corn for $1.25 per bushel from Dale Vernon, a farmer. Fresher Foods paid $125 down and agreed to pay the remainder of the purchase price on delivery, which was scheduled for one week later. When Fresher Foods tendered the balance of $1,125 on the scheduled day of delivery and requested the corn, Vernon refused to deliver it. Fresher Foods sued Vernon for damages, claiming that Vernon had breached their oral contract.

Can Fresher Foods recover? If so, to what extent?

    In the case of Fresher Goods, Inc. v. Vernon, the trial court will possibly conclude that Vernon must complete the portion of the payment which has already been compensated for as a result of partial results.

    Explanation:

    Vernon accepted partial payment for the sold goods. While the Law of Frauds demanded that any contract for the selling of goods at a price of $500 or more be enforceable in writing, the oral arrangement was partially compensated and agreed by all parties. That part of the deal was binding, so Vernon would supply 100 corn bushels to Fresher for $1.25 per bushel.
