Go to any agricultural store. Even tractor supply. It is not hard to do and it is not expensive. You biggest issue would be a power source. You need to make the animals afraid of the fence by giving them a good jolt the first time they try to get through it. They will remember.

Can you recommend some electric fence companies for enclosing a food plot?
Gallagher is the only game in town worth anything I have found. Theirs keeps out deer, coons pretty well. You need to look at their wildlife stuff not ag. It is different in configuration and materials. They are online and also available thru most local fence suppliers

Eagle forage beans are worth the extra money in your situation. I planted them side by side with non forage beans for a few years in a high density deer area and there is no comparison. I've watched them walk thru the others to feed in the Eagles and the Eagles are still taller and have more beans all season.

P.L.Rohrer down in Smoketown Lancaster Co is usually hard to beat pricewise even if it needs shipped. They are now dealing Eagle seeds. I believe they do a ton of volume more (as in tractor trailer load of seed )than most little guys and seem to pass their saving on to customers. May want to check them out for future seed purchases. I know Eagle stuff is very expensive.
