On Monday The Farmlink Project was featured on the Ellen show!

During the last week of January, The Farmlink Project’s co-founder Aidan Reilly received an unusual direct message on Instagram: an invite to possibly be featured on T.V. talk show Ellen. The producer had encountered a CBS piece about The Farmlink Project, and thought The Farmlink Project would be a great organization to feature on Ellen. Despite coming from the show’s producer, Aidan was unsure whether the message would lead to an actual feature on the Ellen Show. The producer scheduled and recorded a Zoom call with Aidan, but prefaced it by saying that this meeting did not mean much and he shouldn’t get his hopes up.

Three weeks after the initial interview, Aidan heard from the producer that Ellen herself loved The Farmlink Project’s story and wanted to feature Aidan on her show. Ellen’s team invited Aidan to their studio on February 22nd, but Aidan had no clue what to expect when showing up. He sat for two and a half hours in the green room while he watched other guests go up on stage and he waited for his turn, until a producer rushed him to a make-up room and pushed him out onto stage.

Ellen and Aidan’s conversation outlined the founding of The Farmlink Project as well as the organization’s current goals. At the end of the segment, Aidan, on behalf of The Farmlink Project, received a $15,000 check donation from the organization TisBest!
