You can keep a mirror of a FreeBSD server but storage and bandwith
consumption depends on what you want to "mirror". I guess you will
consume all your bandwith with copying of all packages from the FreeBSD
main/mirror sites to your local server.

Instead of working with packages, I suggest working with ports. As you
have already installed a base system, you can install anything with ports.
