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, then the following places are the best we’ve found:
Veritas is a chain of organic supermarkets where you will be able to find organic meats such as pork chops, pork sausages, pigs trotters, bacon, speciality sausages (chorizo, fuet etc), chicken legs and chicken wings; various cuts of beef, liver and occasionally lamb.
Veritas have locations in Barcelona in the following locations. Those at c/Mandri and Via Laietana are larger stores and therefore have greater choice:
C/ Torrent de L’Olla 200, Gràcia, 08012, Barcelona

Via Laietana 28, Ciutat Vella, 08003, Barcelona

A large (by Spanish standards) and well-stocked organic supermarket with a large organic and/or locally-produced meat counter.
They have a great range or organic meats, offal and by-products but tread carefully, as not all their meat is organic.
Bioespacio is a great place to shop for all your organic needs and probably has the largest selection in Barcelona.
Carrer de València, 186, 08011, Barcelona
I’ve not used this place because it’s more of an online shop (mail order) service than a shop. They stock all different cuts of beef, chicken, lamb and goat.
A new establishment, Obbio is a very upmarket organic supermarket and café that stocks a small range of organic meats.
You can find Obbio at Calle Muntaner 177 between c/Paris and c/Corsega.
