Online Animal Butcher Shop Porter Road Secures $3.7M in Seed Funding

Porter Road, a Nashville, Tennessee-based online animal butcher shop, secured $3.7m in seed funding.

Backers included Max Ventures, Slow Ventures, BoxGroup, Tribeca Venture Partners, Collaborative Fund and Great Oaks VC, among others.

The company intends to use the funds to expand operations, deepen relationships with its farmers and continue to provide a platform that encourages an open, honest dialogue about the evolving food ecosystem.

Founded by trained chefs and butchers, Chris Carter and James Peisker, Porter Road is an online, whole animal butcher shop which works directly with sustainable local farmers to raise animals to strict specifications, meticulously processes the meats in their own facility in Kentucky and ships directly to the consumer in biodegradable packaging.
