About Us

Dawn Connelly, Founder, Yosemite Sierra SpecialtiesWelcome to Yosemite Sierra Specialties, an online specialty and gourmet food store. It is located just outside the Southern Gateway to Yosemite National Park, nestled in the foothills of the Sierras. The business is located at what my family calls “Deer Oak Acres”, a very special mountain location at 3,100 feet. The online store sells gourmet sauces, gift baskets and products sets of Yosemite Sierra Specialty gourmet products. These products include, but are not limited to, dried fruits, nuts, beef jerky, turkey jerky, and trail mixes packaged by hand in the Sierras, just outside Yosemite National Park. Our product line is also available as wholesale, just email us for details. 

All of the products we carry are a reflection of mountain goodness.  The gourmet sauce line has both Organic or  all-natural grilling sauces, dressings and marinades.    Our line of jerky is packaged in California made from All American meats. Here in the Sierras we consider Jerky a delectable delight.   Yosemite Sierra Specialties can make a gift for any occasion.
