I went to the handbook online, and in 
Section 2.8, Figure 2.27. Choose Installation Media
Option 9 USB is Install from a USB Drive.
That seems to cover your situation.

You can also install from a DOS partition or from an existing filesystem, or
from floppy disk set or FTP server, or from a FreeBSD CD or DVD.
