You must use one of methods described here:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/synching.html
extract:  The primary services we offer are Anonymous CVS, CVSup, and CTM.

Once you have the source, you can use any medium* available to get
it to the system in question. So, you can update world without internet
access.

*) that is any medium providing unix file system characteristics, that is
rock ridge and iso9660, raw tar and friends, tar and friends on iso9660,
a file-backed UFS on iso9660 and others. But, you have to create the CD
with a Unix-like OS.

Also, from time to time snapshots of stable become available in CD images.
