there is a section on setting up a local cache for pkg repositories here 
in the handbook:

depending on your needs you could create a local cache for your systems 
based on the quarterly pkg releases.  then use sneaker net to make the 
cached packages available on your private network.

alternatively you can use poudriere 
( and set that up to 
build your packages and serve them internally.
