David Linderman

The Lindermans began working with young people 40 years ago. The idea was to put unwanted animals together with unwanted kids. Caring for the animals taught these kids a work ethic that saved their lives. 


After several years full of many fascinating adventures, they invited 10 of these young people to become partners in their company, "The Great American Entertainment Company". 

As partners we have become the best of the best in the rodeo, fair and event industry. We travel all over the country sharing our love of animals and agriculture.

The Great American Entertainment Company Crew

Several years ago, the Great American Entertainment Company moved its home base from Oregon to Stephenville, Texas, purchasing a 50-acre ranch. Great American Lone Star Ranch now provides educational experiences that inspire and last a lifetime.

David and Dianne have owned three famous restaurants in Medford and Grants Pass, Oregon. Their restaurant on an organic farm was written up in Sunset Magazine as one of the best places to eat in Oregon. Texan-born Dianne brings healthy, delicious, and made-with-love meals back to the kitchen table.
