Install an MTA (sendmail or postfix or exim) on your home server, and
tell fetchmail to deliver the mail through that MTA rather than
directly into your mailbox.  Then you can set up spam filtering either
in the MTA, or you can call spamassassin (or run spamd as a service
and call spamc) from your local delivery agent, e.g., add recipes to
the $HOME/.procmailrc file.

Alternately -- and you may already be doing this -- have fetchmail
deliver through procmail, in which case see above about spamassassin.
