It can be difficult finding sources of organic meat in Spain, however, there are an ever-increasing number of places in Barcelona where you can buy meat without pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and what have you.
Much as organic meat is expensive, the multi-faceted upside (less chemicals, better treatment and lives for the livestock and poultry etc, and the people that work on the farms and better quality meat) makes the additional cost easier to bare.
You will occasionally find organic meat in ordinary high-street supermarkets, more so in the up-market ones such as El Corte Ingles, but if you want more choice, ShBarcelona has a list of places you might want to check out.
