Great cheese and ice cream

We went to school here and got hooked on Cougar Gold cheese. Have been buying this cheese annually for 50 years and share it at all special occasions with friends and family. This visit we also bought an ice cream cone as a treat. We had forgotten how good this ice cream is. So much richer and... read more

Went there for Cougar Gold, tried a few samples of other cheeses and ice creams. Did I mention the Cougar Gold? Really an ice cream shop with retail cheese sales. Oh, and buy and buy some Cougar Gold!

Ferdinand's sells Cougar Gold and other cheeses, Cougar Smokies sausages, and ice cream, all made on the WSU campus. They are all excellent! There is a viewing room overlooking the cheese-making facility. Caramel Cashew and Raspberry Ripple are 2 of our favorite ice cream flavors. It is worth your visit!

Great ice cream and outstanding cheese. The staff is friendly and willing to let you have samples of their cheese and ice cream. We really liked the Cougar Gold, it is an eating cheese, not a cooking cheese. Parking can be full, but the lot has a quick turn over.

We finally made it to Ferdinand's a couple years ago after hearing about it for a few years. Great ice cream AND Cougar Gold Cheese, plus other great cheeses like Dill Garlic and Vilking Cheese to name a few. And the grandkids love to go there! Who doesn't love really good ice cream!

Great place to visit, especially in the mornings while they are often times making cheese which one can watch from the viewing room. They offer cheese samples and ice cream samples. Cougar Gold cheese (their best cheese) is a sharp cheddar cheese that is quite tasty with apple slices, but they also have several other cheese flavors such as Crimson... More

This is a must stop and have some ice cream place. Ice cream is the best you have ever had and servings are huge.

$20 for Cougar Gold here! Ice cream so creamy and good, it will make you go mmmm. I had the Cashew Caramel. They will let you sample the different cheese varieties. Expect a line but it goes fast. Metered parking and you need to use a credit card, it will cost you a buck. Don't be stupid like me and... More

Ferdinand's Icecream is the best kept secret in Eastern Washington. There ice-cream and Cougar Gold cheese is absolutely amazing. The lines are long on football game days, but well worth the wait! There is some seating outdoors, but it fills up fast. Most people just enjoy the nice weather and sit in the grass under the shade trees. Go by... More

You just can't beat this ice cream. Go for whatever seasonal flavor they offer. We had huckleberry over the summer. Yum!!!! Take home some cougar gold cheese as well. You won't regret it.
