I need some advice on best hardware / best practice when running ethernet over fiber optic.

So, I've been tasked with connecting a satellite office to our main network. The run is well over 400 feet long, so ethernet-over-fiber makes the most sense to me. There are 5x workstations in the satellite building and we need to support a decent amount of bandwidth, say equivalent to at least 100-base.
I've found these boxes on Amazon
, which seem to be a legit starting point and fit the budget well.
What type of cable must I purchase? Any special considerations? Are the ethernet-to-fiber boxes I've found adequate?
Many thanks, hivemind! This will be my first fiber run and I want to do it right.
