Inkerman Lime & Gypsum has been operating and servicing the Burdekin and surrounding areas since 1932. The company has always been proudly locally owned. The current owners are Robert, Joe and Rosetta Tama of Home Hill.
The Tama family are no strangers to the Burdekin region and the land, having lived there for nearly half a century, and are also no strangers to the various industries that keep our region ticking away. They are personally involved and have interests and investments in sugar cane, small crops, mangoes and also high value cabinet timber forestry in the Burdekin. The Tama's have been aware of the benefits of lime and gypsum products and have used them extensively over the years. We loved the benefits of these products so much "we bought the company". We would like for you to share the same experience as well.
Gypsum and lime have been used for more than 200 years as a soil amendment and fertilizer. At least 30 benefits have been documented. Gypsum and lime for various reasons can substantially increase crop yields, and the normal rate of increase is 10 to 50 percent."
