there is a section on setting up a local cache for pkg repositories here 
in the handbook:
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/hubs/mirror-howto.html

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 
(https://www.freshports.org/ports-mgmt/poudriere/) and set that up to 
build your packages and serve them internally.
