After testing the service myself, I don’t think I can go back to shopping the meat aisles of my local supermarket again.

When the residents of Nashville want a good cut of meat for dinner or a barbecue, they stop by butcher shop Porter Road, where everything is sourced from a local farm and hand-cut by people who know their meats.
The neighborhood favorite, which opened in 2011, was founded by trained chefs Chris Carter and James Peisker who realized that it was difficult to find quality meat, even when they visited farmer’s markets, while shopping for their catering business.
In 2018, they took the business online to recreate the local experience for home cooks nationwide. “Bringing Porter Road online truly happened out of necessity, as we had friends, family, and loyal customers outside of Nashville who kept telling us they couldn’t find good quality, humanely-raised meat,” says Peisker.
What is Porter Road
Porter Road sells beef, pork, lamb, and chicken, which is conveniently delivered to your door so you can enjoy the taste and care of the original Tennessee butcher shop, whether you live one state over or on the other side of the country.
Meat quality is undeniably affected by how the animal is fed and raised. All the animals sent to Porter Road’s processing facility are pasture-raised and treated humanely on carefully vetted farms in Kentucky and Tennessee.
They aren’t given any added hormones or antibiotics and live under the least amount of stress possible. When it comes to sourcing meat ethically so you can consume it with peace of mind, Porter Road ticks off all the boxes.
What Porter Road offers
The company’s beautifully designed website and large selection of cuts make shopping for dinner very enjoyable, not to mention educational. You can browse by type of meat and further narrow your choices by cooking time and cooking gear (e.g. oven, grill, sous vide).
