After leaving the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Seki and her husband moved to Fukushima to start an organic farm, Nanakusa farm, and a micro-brewery, Nanakusa Nano Brewery. They are members of the Fukushima Organic Agricultural Network (FOAN) and organize an organic farm producers group, Organic Fukushima Adachi, and a winery, Fukushima Farmers’ Dream Wine Co.
