Where Every Family Matters

SPOTLIGHT: Heniscity Farm in Pegram, TN

“If there is a round hole, I have always been the square, if not hexagon peg.”

Cynthia Capers, a retired trauma nurse, pharmaceutical biotech clinical researcher and sorority member of Sigma Gamma Rho, Inc., is the founder/owner of Heniscity Farm in Pegram, TN.

Bonding to kindred spirits lost over time, Heniscity Farm was created to extend across that ancestral journey to Mother Earth unifying cultural gaps to the land, reducing hunger along the way. National Poultry Improvement Program (NPIP) certified, Heniscity Farm, specializes in heritage breeds and domestic free-range poultry locally grown. From the big city of Chicago to now a small-town feathered fowl aficionado, Cynthia has over 20 years’ experience with poultry, creating custom blended feed for her diverse flock.

In addition, she is an avid gardener raising vegetables and herbs using a straw bale system. Items sold via eCommerce and local community stores are pastured meat, fresh eggs, canned preserves and herbal balms all produced on the farm. 

A graduate of TSU’s New Farmers Academy, she is also a member of American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (APPPA), Livestock Conservancy, a licensed egg grader and industrial hemp grower. Though new to farming, she is considered the local poultry expert in the Nashville TN area and believes heritage poultry must be on the agricultural radar as entry level livestock. 

Henscity Farm is located at 8401 Old Charlotte Pike in Pegram, TN. For more information, call 423-291-7001, email heniscityfarm@gmail.com or visit localhens.com/farms/heniscity-farm.
