CULLMAN, AL (WAFF) -

A judge issued an order stating the CEO of Cypress Creek Organic Farms must pay $228,000 plus interest to 24 former affiliate farmers.

James Lawhorne advertised affiliate farmers could make up to $40,000 a year growing organic tomatoes, but those farmers had to pay more than $9,000 up front for a green house, soil testing, seeds, and training.

The Better Business Bureau issued an alert on Cypress Creek Organic Farms, stating Lawhorne could not back up those claims. Lawhorne closed up shop, and several affiliates filed a civil lawsuit. Lawhorne did not respond to the lawsuit, and the judge issued a default judgment against him.
