The Gallagher North Bend Ranch, named for the bend of Lagunitas Creek that runs through it, comprises 337 acres in the shadow of Black Mountain, just outside of Point Reyes Station. The Gallagher family—fourth-generation West Marin ranchers—graze beef cattle on the grassy hillsides and grow silage in the lowland fields.
