The folks at Porter Road work on the scene to make sure every Tennessee and Kentucky farm and ranch they partner with uses the highest standards and practices in raising their organic, free-range, and cage-free animals. All animals roam outside, eat vegetarian feed that’s free of GMOs, and receive appropriate attention at every stage of their lives. At Porter Road, they say, “meat that’s raised better tastes better.”
All meats are hand-cut at the Porter Road facility in Kentucky. Beef gets dry-aged for a minimum of 14 days to intensify flavor and tenderness. In addition to flavorful cuts of beef, this outfit also offers humanely-raised chicken, beautifully-marbled lamb, and pasture-raised pork. You’ll notice the difference in quality not only in the flavor of the meat but in its hues as well. For example, Porter Road chicken takes on a deep yellow color, and the pork, beef, and lamb meat is darker than what you typically see in grocery stores. The color disparity is the natural result of raising animals in nature, where they are free to graze and roam, rather than in a mass meat production facility.
Porter Road’s goal is to make the best meat available nationwide. Order through the company’s new subscription service, which makes procuring the best meats for your table easy and convenient.
