isn't there water in that pipe ,in the well head .or is it down lower in the earth ?
Those are electrical boxes on either end, I’m not certain how low the pitless adapter is, but I found in the craw space where it more than likely froze

Is that well head abandoned? Typically see 1” or 1-1/4” pipe at the top to send the water to the rest of the system (pressure switch, pump saver, pressure tank..).

Up here, you typically have an outer sleeve which may or may not stick up like that, then the actual water pipe iinside run below grade so it doesn't freeze.

The head gives a place for the electric and a way to pull the pump out if needed.
