I maintain a FreeBSD build slave, and 3.5 is most certainly available as of a few weeks ago, I just reviewed my “history” output there. You may issue commands:

$ sudo pkg update
$ sudo pkg add python35

FreeBSD ships pip as a package. I suggest not to install it through freebsd, but rather using get-pip.py(*).

$ sudo python3.5 get-pip.py



(*)As pip updates itself, and installs and updates all other python packages, I am against the operating system managing anything but the python interpreter by principal.

For example, when attempting to perform a “pkg" upgrade of all installed python packages through freebsd, it will downgrade pip and many others as it “uninstalls” something pip may have later upgraded without its knowledge, producing bad state in the site-packages folder.
