Each September and October, Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England take orders in person from friends and family for delicious nuts and candy as part of the Fall Product Program. The nuts and candy from Ashdon Farms arrive just in time for Thanksgiving and make great holiday gifts, hostess gifts, and teacher “thank you” gifts.
This year we are partnering with M2 Media for magazines and they have over 600 magazine titles that are available for new subscriptions or renewals. They also offer digital titles and eBook/Audiobooks. Visit the Fall Product Program Items page for more information about all the great items offered during the Fall Product Program.
This year's theme is "Own Your Magic” and the 2023 mascot is the Ocelot.
2023 Dates: The program begins on September 14. All order taking ends October 27.
Who can participate? All Girl Scouts from Daisies through Ambassadors can participate!
Why participate? Through Girl Scout Product Programs, Girl Scouts develop five essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. In addition, troops get a head start on funding their activities for the year!

Multi-level troops with registered Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and/or Juniors cannot opt out of rewards
The Fall Product Program is a great way to support our military! Customers have an option online and on the order cards to purchase Military Share nuts. Customers may purchase military nuts for $6. All Military Share nuts are distributed to our local military service members.
Girl Scouts who have 5+ Military Share donations will earn the 2023 Care to Share Patch!
Getting started in M2OS is easy!
M2OS is the online system for Girl Scouts and volunteers to manage the Fall Product Program.
Please be sure to follow all GSUSA internet safety guidelines.
Here's how your customers can order products from Girl Scouts:
When you are logged into your account, click the arrow in the top right corner, then "Profile", and then change your password.
No girl, or adult acting on behalf of girl members, can collect money online for Girl Scout products or a money-earning activity online. The exception to this is GSUSA approved product programs.
Girls are only to use the internet to market the Girl Scout Fall Product Program to friends and family. Friends and family are people whom the girl or her family personally know.
