I know next to nothing about folk metal, so I'm looking for some recommendations from those who do know the genre well. The bands I already know are Skiltron and Triddana, who I both love. As far as folk music goes, I love Celtic (Scottish, Irish included), Medieval, and Scandinavian folk music.

I´m no Expert in the genre, but I used to enjoy some of the early albums by Skyclad.
 
I like some of Falconer´s releases too.

Cruachan, Celtic folk metal from Ireland. Some albums are black metal based, some aren't.

Black metal based Cruachan:



Cruachan without the black metal:

Аркона (Arkona), Russian folk metal.

Fejd's latest album Trolldom (they weren't metal before this one) is a Nordic folk metal release:

For some stuff not to be taken so seriously, Alestorm:

Power folk metal from Italy - Elvenking. Their folk elements were lessened on a couple of their releases, but they've brought them back more recently. Their mostly acoustic album Two Tragedy Poets is also worth a listen.

SIG:AR:TYR have a more dark/neofolk take on the genre:

This is a start, I'll put some more in another post.

Wilderun, as US band who have made two great albums so far. First if a bit more overly folk than the second.

Wolfchant, whose sound has since changed towards power metal, had a melodic black/folk metal thing going at one point:

I guess I should also mention Eluveitie. A lot of people like them, though I always feel that their music could be so much more than it is. They do have a number of really good tracks though. But to be honest my favourite album from them is their non-metal one.

Falconer's work usually falls under power metal with folk influences, however they do some some albums that are more folk heavy, notably the Swedish language Armod.

Hope you find something you like. I don't listen to that many folk metal bands myself, but some of the ones here have produced some of the best albums I've ever heard.

I'd also add Korpiklaani, especially if you like drinking songs, and Finntroll.

Just took a listen to all the bands you posted videos of Adam, thanks and I loved a good chunk of them. 

I'll definitely be having a binge listening soon of these:
Non-Black Metal Cruachan
Arkona
Fejd
Alestorm
SIG:AR:TYR
Wolfchant
Falconer

I was sure missing out on some amazing music.

I'm not well versed in folk metal myself. I enjoy Agalloch but I don't find them to be typical folk metal at all. I did enjoy Fejd's new album and Falconer's Armod is good, but I mostly listened to it as a power metal album like their others.

I recommend listening to Mägo de Oz.

P.S.: I remember listening a while ago to "The Pagan Manifesto" by Elvenking. I found it quite good.
