JetBlue goes green with its own airport farm at JFK

Jet Blue Airways has opened its own farm at Kennedy International Airport right on top of 24,000 square-feet of concrete outside Terminal 5. While the initial plan is to use it to educate travelers (more than to feed them), the airlines hopes to use some of its crop of 1,000 Adirondack blue potato plants to make its Terra blue potato chips served on its flights. It was also noted that instead of being cultivated directly in the ground, the plants are being green in plastic milk crates bolted together and tied with hooks to the cement floor, with the structure designed to be able to withstand a hurricane of 160 mph winds. Although Long Island was once famous for its potato farms, most people nowadays probably never saw one, noted Jared Simon, JetBlue’s senior director of marketing.
