The first thing is the cost. Sprinkler systems require a large volume of water.
The other issue is freezing. You'd have to heat the buildings....that brings us back to cost.

What large volume of water? When a sprinkler operates. It's only over the fire. It's not every head on the system. If the well and pump will flow two sprinkler heads, that is lots. The sprinkler system detects and extinguishes or holds the fire in check.
Ever heard tell of a dry sprinkler system? The pipe work is filled with compressed air until a head opens.

Try putting out a barn fire with a hose supplied by a typical farm well. That"s the supply you have to deal with.

That's one type of sprinkler system. The more expensive type.

What's more common and affordable are the kind that have water in the pipes all the time, and set off all the heads at once when a fire is detected.

To set off the head only where the fire is you'd need a complex and expensive set of heat and smoke sensors. You see that in data centers where it makes financial sense to limit the damage to priceless data, but everyone gets wet in the general office spaces.
