Will deer eat unprotected beans/peas?

I am planning my first large vegetable garden for next spring. I hope to have a large area enclosed with deer-proof fence, but will also have tons of space that isn’t fenced. If I string a twine trellis between two trees and plant beans, outside the fence, will deer eat them all? We are rural farm area, and definitely have deer. How do commercial farmers prevent deer damage? Or do they just factor that into the final yield?
