The Fall Product Program is an optional council-sponsored program directed toward family and friends. Troops earn start-up money by selling nuts, chocolates, and magazine subscriptions. New troops that have no resources in their treasury can quickly earn money to fund their needed uniforms, Journey books, and Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.
Troops retain a full 15% of the purchase price of all Ashdon Farms products and 15% of the purchase price of all M2 sales. Individual Girl Scouts can earn patches and other fun rewards.

Can our troop opt out of rewards?
There is no opt-out for the fall product program.

When is the initial order period?
Initial order taking begins September 23 and orders (order card and online) must be submitted by October 9 at 8:00 p.m. Online shipped orders will continue until November 22.
When and where is initial order delivery?
Initial order delivery is October 31- November 14. Locations vary by service unit and you will be informed of your location by your Service Unit Product Program Representative.
Will we use a software system for ordering, calculating sales, and girl rewards?
Yes, the software system is called M2OS. It can handle both nut and magazine orders.
Will an ACH (Automated Clearing House) debit be used to collect funds due to council?
Yes, ACH withdrawals will begin November 28, so make sure you have sufficient funds to cover the amount due at least seven days before this debit date. Processing times for deposits vary; do not wait until the day before the debit is scheduled to deposit money into your troop account. You should be depositing promptly and frequently and encouraging your parents to be turning over funds they or their daughter have collected.
If I am a Juliette, can I still participate in the fall program?
No. The Fall Product Program is designed to help troops earn start-up money to fund their troop activities at the beginning of the year.
Will there be a Gift of Caring (GOC) program?
Yes, customers may make monetary GOC donations (in $7 increments). GSU will then purchase nuts to be sent to the local food bank in Salt Lake City.
What about the magazine portion of the sale?
All magazine and more orders are taken online. When a girl (with her parents) set up her storefront in M2OS, she will send emails to family and friends for her sale. A link in the email will direct the customers to her store where they can choose to order nuts, collectible tins, candy, and magazine subscriptions.
What if I have additional questions?
Girl Scouts and caregivers should contact their Troop Product Manager. If Troop Product Managers have questions, they will contact their Service Unit Product Program Representative. Service Unit Product Program Representatives can contact the council at 801-716-5125 or email@example.com.
