“If it's not raised right it can't be delicious."
Co-founders James Peisker and Chris Carter met in one of downtown Nashville’s favorite kitchens. They immediately hit it off, and decided to jump ship to start their own catering business. As the business grew, Chris and James realized how hard it was to get their hands on quality, local meat from sources they could trust.

They made constant trips to the farmer’s market, but even there, the meat wasn’t cut properly, and was often sold frozen. Yet again, they decided to take matters into their own hands, and started their own butcher shop.

Today, Porter Road works with select farms, and expertly hand-cuts every piece at their Kentucky facility. While the butcher shop has become a cult favorite for people who live nearby, Chris and James realized that friends and family outside of Nashville were still stuck eating low quality, grocery store meat. In 2017, they decided to take Porter Road online with the goal of making the world’s best meat accessible nationwide.
