The Fall Product Program is a council-sponsored program that combines educational activities with money earning opportunities for the troops.

During the program, girls offer nuts, candy, and magazines to their customers, all of which go a long way to help troops fund awesome Girl Scout experiences. New and existing troops can purchase troop supplies for their meetings, as well as save money to fund overnight adventures, day trips, travel experiences and awards.

P.S. Fall Product makes perfect holiday gifts! 


Why Participate

Programming

The Fall Product Program provides an excellent opportunity for troops and independent Juliette Girl Scouts to learn about goal setting, sales, marketing, and budgeting. It's also a great way to earn income to support Girl Scout activities.

5 skills girls learn through the programs:

  • Goal Setting
  • Decision Making 
  • Money Management
  • People Skills
  • Business Ethics

All girls can earn additional patches and rewards through selling nuts, candy, and magazines provided in partnership with Ashdon Farms and M2 Media Group. The 2021 Fall Product Program features new products and girl rewards so talk to your troop or Service Unit Manager today about participating!

Troop Proceeds

Don’t forget, your troop will earn 15% of all sales, which will help fund the amazing activities you have planned for this coming Girl Scout year!  Set goals with your Girl Scouts and get ready to have some fun!  

Continued for 2021, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors can now choose to OPT-OUT of rewards. They will receive 18% of the total value of all orders, earn all patches, and the trophy at the 100 reward level!
