You will need to have the utility company put in several poles and run the line, not cheap but the only way

yes, but not with just an extension-cord. You'd need extra high voltage as a lot of it will be lost

With that distance, you would have to use large gage wire. But that depends on the current load, which is not stated.
You may have to have the power company run a high voltage line the 1/4 mile with step-down transformer at the end, if the size of the wire gets too big to be practical.
But it all depends on the load.

Yes, you run wires.
