JFK airport is growing veggies at its new farm


JFK FarmYou’ve heard of farm-to-table, but what about farm-to-air?

JetBlue and Terra Chips just revealed the Terminal 5 (T5) Farm at JFK Airport, a blue potato and produce garden with 24,000 square feet of potato plants, herbs, arugula, beets, and more, with an expected yield of 1,000 pounds of potatoes per harvest.

The crops will go to some of T5’s restaurants and local food pantries, with the eventual goal of the potatoes going to some of the Terra Chips served on-board on JetBlue flights.

Maybe the next crop will grow ingredients for a bean dip? —Jamie McKillop
