Neuadel aus Blut und Boden: Although first coined by the Social Democrat August Winnig, ‘Blood and Soil’ (Blut und Boden) became the motto of the Reichsnährstand, the Nazi agency responsible for food and farming, and before that figured in the title of a Walther Darré’s important book Neuadel aus Blut und Boden (A New Nobility From Blood And Soil, first published 1930).
In Nazi Germany the Reichsnährstands-Ausstellung was the annual national agricultural exhibition, acting as a celebration of the best animals and produce of German farmers and a showcase for the manufacturers of machinery and other products. The annual travelling exhibition (Wander-Ausstellung) had previously been organised by the Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG; German Agricultural Society), an independent civic body founded in 1885. It was taken over by the Reichsnährstand from 1934 onwards and held every year (except 1938) until the outbreak of war.
