The airport seems like an unlikely place to grow produce, but a new 24,000 square foot urban potato farm planted by JetBlue Airlines hopes to put those local spuds to good use.

The plan is that it will provide ingredients to T5’s restaurants, be a source for donations for local food pantries, and possibly be used for those Terra Blues potato chips you can get as a snack on most JetBlue flights.

You can see the farm — made from 2300 plastic milk crates bolted together — near the curb of Terminal 5 at JFK Airpot.
