Kennedy International Airport now plays home to a potato farm. JetBlue has spouted the farm at Terminal 5 of the New York airport to promote New York Agriculture and provide a “green space” for travelers. The T5 Farm was created through a partnership between JetBlue and TERRA brand The T5 Farm will yield blue potatoes like those used to make the TERRA Blues. TERRA Blues have been the official snack of JetBlue since the airline launched. The 24,000 square foot farm will feature 3,000 crates of potato plants, herbs and other produce. It will highlight local farmers and New York’s agriculture and is expected to grow more than 1,000 pounds of blue potatoes per harvest. The goal is to first supply some of the terminal’s restaurants and eateries, with the goal of blue potatoes eventually finding their way back in TERRA Blues served onboard.
The farm is located pre-security on the departures level of T5, JetBlue’s flagship terminal.
