Hard to beat ice cream and cheese from the WSU farm. You'll pay for the quality but it is well worth it. Some of the finest Ice Cream I've had in the US. The cheese (cheddars and flavored cheddars) are great!

Ferdinand's is an ice cream and cheese shop. A MUST visit for anyone on the Washington State University campus. Since I have worked at this institution for over 30 years, it has been a staple for my cheese and ice cream needs. Both the cheese and ice cream are made at the University, and have won national awards.

The hours and location of Ferdinand's can be tricky, so check carefully before heading to the Washington State campus to partake. Once you navigate to Ferdinand's and find parking, prepare for a treat. There are so many choices, all of them fresh and delicious. It's a unique idea in an unexpected location, worth the effort to get there.

We went to Ferdinand's expecting to have Ice Cream with our lunch (out of towners), but this is strictly an ice cream and packaged cheese shop. Nevertheless we had really delicious ice cream and do recommend it highly for that.

This is not a restaurant, Trip Advisor. It is a soda fountain and cheese shop, but an excellent one. The ice cream pleases even when it is freezing cold outside. We all want a can of Cougar Gold for Christmas, or at least this is what friends and family tell me every year.

This was the first time that I went to a very good ice cream store in Pullman. The ice creams are very delicious.

If you want the best ice cream, this is the place to go! My Husband told me about from his days at WSU and he didn't exaggerate. The Cheese is also a one of a Kind.

Ice cream made on location. Location off the beaten path, except for student and workers at WSU. Well worth the trip.

The ice cream is fantastic. So good I ended up coming back here twice while I was visiting family in Moscow. The cougar tracks flavor is delicious and I would reccomend trying it. The milkshakes and "grabbers" are also delicious.
