My very mature aloe vera plant has a long, winding stalk. Is that because of the type of aloe it is? I would like an aloe plant where the leaves grow from the level of the plant/dirt. Do you have any advice?

You can repot the plant and set it deeper into a pot.
You also could make several smaller plants by propagating the aloe vera plant.
Here are some links for you.
