I grew up in Edison and River Vale and your post about Demarest Farms brings back such memories! I remember going with my mother when you could buy a cup for cider for about a quarter, free refills. I left NJ to go to college 30 years ago, but return often to visit family. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
