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 the first year, the company has been number one of its kind. Their quest is to make sure that every man women and child has the opportunity to realize how important agriculture is, and to keep the culture of animals and farms alive and thriving. 

During the pandemic, we were grounded at home on our 50-acre ranch (and loved every minute of it), but we had to pivot to new ideas and events to support our staff and feed our more than 200 petting farm animals and ponies. We launched several very successful ventures and survived because of the patronage of our incredible community. Dianne’s Ranch Diner is temporarily closed due to the staffing shortage, but check out:

Guided Ranch Adventure Tours

at Great American Lone Star Ranch 

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. 

If you'd like, feed the animals—feed cones are $3 or 2 for $5.

The grand finale is our huge Backyard Farmyard full of llamas, deer, wallabies, mini zebu cows, mini donkeys, chickens, ducks, geese, ponies, goats, sheep and whatever new babies 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.
