You probably had no idea ... that Stephenville, Texas is the home base of the number one traveling “Ag-utainment” company in the country

—Great American Entertainment Co—

and its educational, hands-on attractions. It was founded in 1983 by David and Dianne Linderman and from that first year, the company has been number one of its kind. Their quest is to make sure that every man, woman and child has the opportunity to realize how important agriculture is, and to keep the culture of animals and farms alive and thriving. 

Because of the pandemic, we are grounded at home on our 50-acre ranch (and loving every minute of it), but we have had to pivot to new ideas and events that will support our staff and feed our more than 200 petting farm animals and ponies. We recently launched two very successful ventures that you may have already heard about...

And we are now introducing... 

Guided Ranch Adventure Tours

at Great American Lone Star Ranch 

for groups of 10 or less at a time, by reservation only.

Call 760-937-6363.

Our highly trained Ranch Wranglers will take you and your family on a once-in-a-lifetime, hands-on walking tour to meet wallabies, deer, and hundreds of tame, beautiful animals. 

You will meet Hustler, our three-legged mini horse with a prosthetic leg, and groom him and hear his story. 


You will also learn to milk a goat, collect eggs, make a rope, clean some pens (if you want), and feed, pet, and groom our huge variety of friendly animals. 

The grand finale is our huge baby yard full of kid goats, lambs, ducks, and chickens and whatever else may pop out in the near future. 

The tours are about 60 to 90 minutes and will end with planting your own little herb garden that you can take home. 

Call 760-937-6363 for reservations.

What fun your whole family will have - and you can become a junior wrangler!

Tours will be available every day throughout the summer by reservation only.


Price is $20 per person—ages 5 and under are free with an adult admission.
