— A gathering place that's part coffeehouse, part art gallery. A purveyor of gourmet jerky, with selections like alligator and salmon. A juice bar that serves yogurt bowls and smoothies.

These are three of the businesses that Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus said "are unique and bring character to Port Jervis."

Neuhaus recently visited these venues as part of his “Open for Business” initiative.

“All three of them have created a buzz in Port Jervis and beyond," said Neuhaus. "Businesses such as these will help attract visitors to Port Jervis and move the city forward. These business owners are all passionate about their brand and I wish them all much success.”

Owner Cooper Boone launched Foundry42 with his partner, Mark Veeder, in November 2016, after renovating the former Tri-State Fitness building on 42 Front Street. Foundry42 features a coffee bar, baked goods made on premises, an upstairs exhibition space with entertainment, specialty events, classes and private rentals. It has been featured in, among other publications, Vanity Fair and Country Living magazines.

Foundry42 can be reached at 858-4942 or via email at cooper@f42home.com. The website is f42home.com, and Foundry42 can be found on Facebook at facebook.com/Foundry42Home.

“Foundry42 is rooted in brewing community,” Boone said. “It’s a gathering place that celebrates coffee, food, design special events and the arts.”

Brothers Jacob and Adam Schoch opened neighboring stores, Adam’s Juice Bar and Woodland Jerky, on 78 Front Street in June. Adam’s Juice Bar offers a variety of fresh pressed juices, smoothies and yogurt bowls. The shop can be reached at 699-8942 and on Facebook at facebook.com/AdamsJuiceBar. Woodland Jerky sells, beef, sausages, hot sauces a variety of jerky, including products made from salmon, alligator, tuna, venison, wild boar, turkey and elk.

Jacob Schoch also makes edible cookie dough from scratch in several flavors, which has been a hit with customers. Woodland Jerky can be reached at 421-9709 or jakeschoch1992@gmail.com.

“My brother and I have been close all of our lives and we wanted to start these businesses together,” Jacob Schoch, 25, said. “We want to succeed and grow with Port Jervis.”
