One of the benefits about being an agriculture university is the on campus dairy producing some of the finest milk and milk products anywhere. Ferdinand's is hugely popular especially on sunny days with its great selection of ice cream, milk shakes and cheeses (including the iconic Cougar Gold), with a line that often stretches out the door, so be prepared...

I was travelling through the Palouse and always like to find regional or local premium ice creams. I've sampled other dairy production college ice creams and found them great. This was no exception. Typical pain driving around a campus. But worth it. High butterfat, real flavors, just like it ought to be. Big scoops of good stuff served by happy... More

This is must stop for delicious, creamy ice cream. Also the place to buy many different flavors of Cougar Gold cheese. The ice cream portions are huge, a single scoop barely fit on top of the come!

We were students here in the 1980s, and the ice cream quality has not diminished one iota since then. On this weekend, we teased our 17-year-old son that he was finally going to get his very first milkshake. Once delivered, he did not disagree. The only thing that we feel may be ever so slightly less enjoyable (compared to 30... More

Thank you for your review. To supply the demand for our fresh curd we now vacuum seal the fresh curd in a bag to keep it as fresh as possible. If you put your fresh curd in the microwave for a few seconds not longer than 5 seconds it will get back it's squeakiness. More

Great hand made cheeses, ice cream and even smoked sausage. All are a part of WSU Food Sciences department. They even have a latte machine there so you can order a mocha, get some cheese and then top it off with a cone! Don't eat up all the Tin Lizzy Ice Cream, I need my fix of it once a... More

Fabulous award-winning Cougar Gold (and other varieties) cheese and ice cream that is rich and incredibly delicious! One of my favorites is their peanut butter chocolate! Give it a try.

Ferdinand's has been a tradition in Pullman for over 60 years. I've always known it for the best dairy fresh milk and ice cream you've ever tasted, and of course they're famous for the cheese. The ice cream is made on site from mostly local ingredients and it's a fantastic combination of hard-pack ice cream with a smooth, creamy texture,... More
