In Animal Farm, Foxwood and Pinchfield are two very different farms, despite being neighbours. Foxwood, for example, is described as a "large" and "old-fashioned" farm with poorly-maintained hedges and worn out pastures. This is because its owner, Mr. Pilkington, is a gentleman who would rather spend his time hunting and fishing than tending to the various jobs on the farm.
In contrast, Pinchfield is described as being "smaller" and "better kept" than Foxwood and this is the result of its owner, Mr. Frederick, who is described as being "tough" and "shrewd." (See Chapter Four).
While Foxwood and Pilkington are very different farms, both are united by their fear of rebellion after the animals overthrow Mr Jones. Furthermore, from an allegorical point of view, both farms represent a European country: England is represented by the "substandard" Foxwood while the highly-organized Pinchfield symbolizes Germany.
