Pagan black metal and viking metal counts too! I think for me it would go something a little like this:

1. Korpiklaani
2. Elvenking
3. Arkona
4. Alestorm
5. Turisas
6. Wilderun
7. Moonsorrow
8. Falconer
9. Slough Feg
10. Skiltron

My love of folk metal tends to focus on a few key bands and I don't actually have a firm top 10: 

Cruachan (has to be number 1)
Wuthering Heights (we have them in Power Metal here, but they have a very strong folk metal element too)
Wolfchant (mostly due to A Pagan Storm, more recent albums have turned toward power metal)
Falconer (much more power metal overall, but a couple of albums - Among beggars and Thieves and Armod - guarantee their place on a folk list)

Honorable mention:

Fejd - I didn't include them in the main list because prior to their fourth and most recent album, they didn't actually play metal. Also their first two albums at least are still their best.
