Just need a bit of information on what size subpanel to install

Hi All,
You guys helped me out about 2 years ago so here I am again.

I have 4 size 2 wires running through (pvc water lines....idiots,) that go from a 30 amp breaker in our well house, out 900 feet to an unused well at the rear of our property.

I want to use the 4 wires, from that 30 amp breaker at about the 500 foot mark in the center of the property. The wires have been exposed at that location and I want to put in an outdoor panel, and then run wiring out to service 8 duplex outlets that will have lighting and in the winter each outlet would have a 1250-1500 watt horse trough heater. The wiring will no longer service that well. What size panel can I put out there, what size wiring to the outlets. The furthest outlet would be approx 600 feet from the sub-panel.

Thanks for your help.
