Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England sponsors two product programs each year. Both the Fall Product Program and the Girl Scout Cookie Program offer amazing opportunities for all those involved, learning the five life skills is just part of the journey!
The 2023 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!
About the Program
Each September/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 which 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.

On September 6, 2023 we held a virtual training for troops to get more acquainted with the Fall Product Program! If you missed that training or need a refresher, check out the recording (Passcode: 3DJUvM$r ).
If you need additional assistance getting started, reach out to your service unit's Product Program coordinator or GSSNE Customer Care.
$2.10 for each magazine sold and military share magazine
$1.00 for each candy/nut/military share nut item sold
Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops have the option to earn additional troop proceeds in lieu of reward items. Older Girl Scouts can receive an extra 15 cents per candy/nut item and 25 cents per magazine if they opt out of receiving reward items. Troops that opt out of rewards still receive patches. Multi-level troops with registered Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and/or Juniors cannot opt out of rewards.
GSSNE has a way for troops to process payments for the Fall Product Program. The ePayment system is available for troops to submit payments directly to GSSNE. The process is user friendly and immediate! Troops simply visit https://sne.gsachonline.com/ when you are ready to make your payment.
Troop steps needed to make an ePayment:
1. Login using their email and password (create an account if they don't have one). Please note: when setting up a new account, select "unknown" as the service unit and you will need to enter a 5-digit troop number. If your troop number is less than 5 digits, add zeros to the beginning of your troop number. For example, Troop 999 would become Troop 00999.
2. Enter/update your profile information
3. Enter troop bank information for each troop you lead. Double-check that your information is correct.
4. Choose troop and enter payment amount and submit
5. Receive an email payment confirmation
6. Troop leaders must immediately send a copy of this email receipt to their Service Unit PPC
7. All payment paperwork must still be submitted to council according to established GSSNE Product Program Policies
Each bounced ePayment (after the first initial bounced payment) made by a troop will incur a $35 fee. Please double-check that your banking information has been entered correctly in the ePayment system before submitting payment to avoid a fee incurred for improper information.
