You would need all files and folders (except 'packages') from eg. 
this location (change the architecture and release as you prefer):
ftp://ftp.ua.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/amd64/7.3-RELEASE/

If you would like also to install additional packages during the 
first install from you local mirror, verify that you also get the 
'packages' folder (it is a softlink/symlink, check your mirroring 
script how it does work with such things). The content of this 
folder could be several GB of size.
