Enjoying quality cuts of meat can often involve a long search, but Porter Road is looking to streamline the experience with its attention to detail and expertise. Founded by cooks James Parker and Chris Carter, this e-commerce-based butcher shop aims to provide premium cuts of beef, pork, lamb and chicken to those who lack quality butcher shops. The duo first met while working in Nashville kitchens and quickly decided to work on a venture together. While the two still maintain a brick-and-mortar butcher shop, Porter Road focuses primarily on the online space with the goal of making the best meat available nationwide.
The quality of the product is maintained by Parker and Carter, as well as a small team, and this is key to the products Porter Road offers. All offerings come from farmers Porter Road's team has personally interacted with and are 100% pasture-raised with no added hormones or antibiotics. While Porter Road does offer individual cuts of meat, the company also provides assembled bundles.
