You discover an unusually square snowdrift -- after you brush the snow off, it is revealed as a wooden crate filled with cans of spinach. This explains what the goats do for food on his godforsaken mountain. Most of the cans are partially-eaten (and the spinach inside them, too), but you find one that's intact.
After looking around to make sure no one's blowing into a great big trumpet and yodelling to warn you about bacterial outbreaks, you pocket the can.
