Stephenville, Texas is uniquely located in rural Texas one-hour southwest of Dallas/Fort Worth for easy access to metropolitan amenities and a major airport, yet isolated from big city stress. A city of over 20,000 friendly people, Stephenville is an inviting, gracious community with a rich western heritage in a beautiful country setting along the Bosque River. It is distinctively Texan – independent, hardworking, and educated. Known as the ‘Cowboy Capital of the World’ and the ‘City of Champions’, Stephenville takes pride in having small-town values, where a strong work ethic, family values, and a giving heart still matter.

The staff of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is proud to serve the citizens and visitors of Erath County. The Erath County, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service aims to provide quality, relevant outreach and continuing education programs and services to the people of Texas based on university research in family and consumer sciences, 4-H, youth development, agriculture, natural resources, home horticulture, and community development.
